Yes but that's assuming a small range on the vehicle in question. Tesla Model-3's with the range package already are capable of more than 400 miles on a charge. Exactly how many miles do you want to drive in a day anyway? And it's not like it's the 1840's any more, with satellite navigation in the vehicle, finding charging stations on the route is dead simple.

Ah, finding working not in use stations on popular roads is a wee bit trickier. Not uncommon to see teslas parked all day at chargers with the charging terminated.

That's a good point. On a sidenote, most of the charging outlets available in my country are limited to the working hours of malls where they're usually located, so it's not really an obvious choice while travelling. Not to mention traffic jams that may take more time to reach them.
