Because if things are close together, then almost everywhere you want/need to go falls within a 70 mile range (or whatever), so an EV with a 70 mile range works. If it's a 40 mile trip to the grocery store, then even if there was a charging point at the store, you'd still have to hang around several hours waiting for the charging to take place. (And that's assuming someone else didn't get to it first, and left for a few hours :-()
