The RangerEV is the best car I have owned for creeping along at low speeds in parking lots. It is so smooth and controllable going at < 1mph. Germany is a weird market for EVs. On the one hand they have alt energy euphoria, but on the other hand the Autobahn is the perfect place to show EV shortcomings. EVs are great for "metropolitan area transport". A Tesla roaming the SF bay area or greater LA is wondrous. EVs are not so good for wide open spaces. Rural Nevada or Wyoming (for instance) shows of the limitations of range at high speed. A huge benefit of EVs (and hybrids for that matter) is the recapture of energy by regen. In a big city or hillside that is very useful. Out on a wide open highway it doesn't make much difference.
