Re: Points to ponder

300km "occasionall"y is a good argument for easier vehicle hire when you need to do that (or a drop in range extender on an EV)

But who is going to make or hire them if 90% of the fleet is electric? It's an argument that only works as long as EVs are a niche market, and it still requires a parallel distibution system for liquid fuel for the long-distance vehicles.

Having a specific vehicle as a daily driver _just_ so you can do a 4000km trip a couple of times a year comes under several shades of silly.

Yes, I'd love to have a stable of cars at my disposal so I could choose the right one each day, but I can't afford that, nor do I have space to keep them, so I need one that is a compromise for al my needs.
