Except we aren't making arguments against EVs (or at least I'm not), we're making arguments against the idea that a 70 mile range is sufficient for most people. The argument would be just the same if the tank of an IC engined vehicle only held enough fuel for 70 miles, and you had to refuel it through a soda straw.

These days I'd be quite happy with a ~200 mile range, and even in the days when I used to make a regular 250 mile trip, Tesla's new 300 or so miles would be sufficient.
