All the EV's with quick chargers are evidence that is not a problem.

You are comparing the LEAST efficient EV with the MOST efficient hybrid. Do the math with 7 people in the Tesla, and 2 people in the Insight.

The Leaf and the Prius are virtually the same size. The Leaf is rated at ~114MPGe, and the Prius is ~50MPG.
