This Infographic Reveals How Tesla's Cars Beats Range Anxiety | Inverse
I didn't know there were so many different electric cars for sale. We only have a few of those available here in the US.
If by "few" you mean 14, then I agree
I should have clarified as readily available for purchase, as several cars on the list like the Bolt and the Volkswagen e-Golf are here in the US but the average person can't actually buy them in most parts of the country. The only electric vehicles readily available for purchase in the Atlanta area as far as I am aware are Tesla, Nissan Leaf, Kia Soul EV, BMW i3, Smart for two, Fiat 500e and the Ford Focus. The Mercedes B-Class may theoretically be available as well if you special ordered one. I didn't look that far into it.
those 14 are NOT available in all 50 states or even in the continental 48 states, 57 if you are a certain former president.
range anxiety is an affliction of the newbie, we all go through it and most of us learn how to cope with the range limitations we live with.
through proper planning, and altering at times your driving style range anxiety should rarely be an issue for cars with any size batteries
I don't think range anxiety has anything to do with the size of the battery. It mainly has to do with the availability and speed of chargers. I had a Leaf before I bought my Tesla, and I never worried about range in it either because I knew how far it would go. There were certain trips I couldn't use it for (like anything outside of Atlanta), but I didn't have anxiety over it. I probably have more stress about the Tesla because you actually can take it on longer trips, but you have the risk of some unforeseen circumstance coming up where the availability and speed of chargers can limit your options.
Really? 90% of household trips are less than 100 miles? I guess that might be technically true, but I seriously doubt anything close to 10% of trips are greater than 100 miles.
true, I agree with your statement, but because most other vehicles (aside from Tesla) do not have access to rapid charging options, that has a direct inverse affect of increasing an owners range anxiety. I cannot myself contemplate driving cross country in one of those low end models, it would take weeks! But that is why I bought a Tesla, I want to be able to travel distances comparable to an ICE vehicle and do so in slightly more time given access to Tesla's proprietary SC network.
