Re "pie in the sky".
Lot of EVs driving around right now disprove that. Right now they work for lots of people.
My bro is buying two teslas, they have solar on top of the house and expect never to visit a filling station ever again and never to pay for car energy. They dont approach 100k in a day. I rarely top 25k in my car. 500k in a day is too much I'd take a train or plane.
