Judging by the sales disparity between the 85 vs 60... and the 'untimely' demise of the 60 AND the stillbirth of the 40... there's obviously a sweet spot in terms of range. Elon has stated in his view it's ~200 miles. There's a lot of talk about 120kWh batteries and so on; However, I rarely if ever use 50kWh of my pack... The primary benefit to a long-range ICE is fewer trips to the gas station... that benefit is moot for an EV since your home is your gas station and you should be plugging when you get home. Yes, sadly this isn't the case for condo/apartment dwellers but even there the more cost-effective solution is going to be better public charging NOT bigger batteries. I've got >70k miles on my S over the last 2.5 years including several trips from NM => WA... looking back a 60 would have suited me just fine if there were as many Superchargers as gas stations... or at least a supercharger every ~50 miles. ~90% of my 70k miles require <150 miles of range.
