But we do need to stop thinking about charging cars in the same way that we refuel them.Porsche says it plans to equip its nearly 200 US dealers with the setup, which will at least serve the more wealthy areas where their buyers live and drive, but not very far.

If people had a pipe delivering petrol or diseasel to their homes so they could top their tank up every night how many would need to refill elsewhere, and how often?
That's an interesting point which has been made quite often in the past, but it set me thinking ...If people had a pipe delivering petrol or diseasel to their homes so they could top their tank up every night how many would need to refill elsewhere, and how often?
We seem to have simultaneously headed down a road of less resilience at the household level to services interruptions
why would I want to pass all that information over to a Google owned company,
Virtually all electric cars can do 100+ miles on one charge.Well, with the pathetic range of most reasonably prices all-electric vehicles currently availably, quite often! Hopefully that will change fair soon.
That is what @davelx said, that range is pathetic when all ICE cars do 300-500 per tank.Virtually all electric cars can do 100+ miles on one charge.
True but almost totally irrelevant. Average mileage is c. 7,800/year which equates to 21 miles/day if evenly spread over 365 days. In practice this will include lots of short journeys (10 miles or less) and a number of longer, maybe much longer, ones.The average car journey in the UK is about 10 miles.
Any evidence for that? I would have thought that virtually everyone drives more than 100 miles in a day a reasonable number of times per year; visiting friends / family, holidays, etc.Very few people drive more than 100 miles in a day
I think that the number of people who can use an EV as their only car is tiny. I suspect an awful lot of people have it as a second car that is limited in what it can do and they have an ICE car that can do anything the EV can and lots more besides.so for most people the existing range is plenty.
Stephen - what is your experience?
Rather than speculate about what others must surely do, if your car magically had a full tank of petrol or diseasel every morning you woke up, how many times so far this year would you have needed to visit a filling station?
