Forget it if you expect me to plug in a stupid car every time we get back home.

My wife does not complain about plugging the car in. It's as easy as plugging in any appliance, and it means she starts off each day with a full tank and never needs to stop for gas (and we all know, gas stations are the coldest/hottest places on earth).

We bought an EV for use as our around town car. It's great. Fun to drive, 200HP, instant torque, >250 mile range. We charge it to 200 miles, use anything from 50 to 150 each day. No range anxiety.

She went from 22mpg in her van to >150 mpg equivalent in the EV.

For road trips we'll take the van.
