The EV I am buying does fit my needs. Tri-motor CT. Why try to dissuade a person who wants to alter the equation from ICE?I bought a commute specific EV in 2011. My wife had a minivan if we needed a big car.
For the rest of the argument, all I can say (again) is: "if an EV doesn't fit your needs, don't get one."
Nearly every house has 240v somewhere. Nearly every town has RV hookups somewhere.Just because you don't believe it does not make it so. Try talking to people who live here. Open your mind to things and you may learn.
We will have to disagree. 1) not every RV park is open in winter. Around here NONE of them are open for winter and most owner don’t live on property in NE. 2) guess what, I ain’t headed to Sydney when I am going north. It’s on the other side of the state. Basically from one side of Germany to the other. Alliance is 485 miles from me. You may think driving 79 miles out of your way to charge is grand, then driving another 79 miles to get back to your planned route. Here we think that is unwise. It is 364 miles from Düsseldorf in the west to Dresden, Germany in the east. 3) you have dismissed the statements of other who corroborate my information. In other words you cherry pick your data. 4) you dismiss the experiences of people who actually live here and use Tesla vehicles. I have not only spoken to them but read their comments in online Tesla forums.Nearly every house has 240v somewhere. Nearly every town has RV hookups somewhere.
I'm sure there are towns 100 miles from the nearest charger, but very few people live more than 100 miles from a city. Less than 1/5th of the us is 'rural' and the vast majority of those live within an hour of a city.
So yes, unlikely. Very.
Google says Alliance has six RV parks and is 79 miles from route I90 which has a Supercharger at Sidney.
The power connections exist. If you can't be bothered to look for it, that seems your problem. Having lived in snowbird country... There's always someone responsible for watching over it all winter. It's just a matter of asking.We will have to disagree.
If you're stopped, you can charge. It doesn't take extra time. In fact, it's kinda wasteful not to charge if you're going to be somewhere.I said I'd like to make that round trip without recharging. Obviously I'm going to stop to visit the family.
Crissa, Crissa, Crissa, the poor guy just wants to take a day trip to see family for a couple hours and go back home. Maybe he doesn't wanna knock on the front door with extension cord in hand and ask if they mind him plugging in for the ride home.If you're stopped, you can charge. It doesn't take extra time.

Plugging in takes less time than Supercharging.
