Right - conditions affect ALL vehicles. And as you gain experience, that means you no longer have anxiety about it.

There is to find charging stations.

Because you might assume that you can alwasy find a gas station - you might well leave yourself less than a 160 mile cushion.

And again, if you want to drive somewhere in an EV - you LOOK on Plugshare to SEE where stations might be, and if they are not there - then you don't drive there.

EV's are just starting to happen. You may not be able to move to an EV until there are more charging stations. But many more people can drive EV's even though they don't know it, now.

EV's are 2-3 TIMES more efficient than ICE's. ICE's will never be anywhere near that efficient. We can make electricity ourselves, from renewable energy sources - and fossil fuels are necessarily finite.

Humans MUST stop using ANY fossil fuels in a very short time - like a decade or two. Get used to it.
Sincerely, Neil
