Re: Whisper it…
The customers didn't want electric cars because the manufacturers said they couldn't have a long range.
"Hold my <burp> beer" - 400 miles
400 miles is "long range"? Not in the US it isn't. It's medium-range at best. I drive over 400 miles in a day once or twice a month, on average.
The longest daily drive I make on a regular basis is around 850 miles, so with a 400-mile-range EV I'd have to recharge completely twice.
400 miles is good range for an EV. It's certainly sufficient for many use cases. But it is not "long" range.
