Some additional factors affecting range anxiety are the reduction of EV range for winter driving and the gradual reduction of range as the battery pack ages. So a new EV with a 100 mile range that meets your driving need may not meet it when driving in -10 degree F temperatures or with 8 year old batteries. When a gas car encounters reduced range due to cold temps or an old, out of tune engine, you can always pop into a gas station to refuel, something more difficult and slower to do with an EV.
