It is about using the right tool for the job.
That's what I've been saying, but consumers are not willing to own a vehicle that only is suitable for 97% of their trips, despite the fact that it's easy to find a gasser for longer trips.

For some reason consumers think that if it's technically possible to drive an EV across the country, they must do that instead of drive something else.
