You never run out of battery on an electric. You learn how far you can go and, if you need to go further, you don't take it. There is some inconvenience sometimes but running out of battery is pretty fictional. The only times I've known this to happen was when people first got their Nissan Leafs, and that was only because the range estimator on the Leaf was completely misleading.

Agree with Dave that you could likely get by with a 120v charger in a pinch. You get 5 miles an hour and your car is likely sitting in the garage for ten hours a day. Wouldn't want to do it as a steady diet but as a backup it would be perfectly fine.
