Why EREVs might still be a better option for some.

I found this video pretty interesting. Personally, I think most of this experience is owed to poor trip planning by the owner, but it is an example of how someone with a busy schedule and long trips can be impacted by owning a BEV.

Ironically, he might have saved himself time by backtracking west and recharging at the Burbank Supercharger, but oh well. First world problems.

How many folk travel over 500 miles at >=85 mph? Outside urban areas, when traffic is light, 85 is normally the slowest I go. Especially in areas with speed limits of 75mph or higher.

It makes no sense in going fast to cut travel time, when you must use the time savings to recharge more often.

A Volt should go 500 miles faster than any BEV. I don't even think it would be close.
