We still need better batteries for that yet. For small communities though, there’s no excuse not to go electric, and many do on their public transportation, taxis and stuff.

Recent advances in the nano-structure labyrinth designs within solar panels (thanks to thin-film improvements) did a big drop on solar costs, so I expect to see much more electric supported by solar in the near future finally, so long as politicians in the pockets of big oil companies don’t try to pull swindles like they tried in Florida with the fraudulent solar bill.

Affordability is key too. But luxury is keeping it alive right now. I’m impressed at 200 miles. I didn’t know they crossed that yet.

I live 7 miles from the corner store and 15 miles from a McDonalds and Walmart. Most trips we do are about 100 miles round trip.
 
So I pay attention to distance for around here, the closest I could hope for would be 7 miles but more likely 45 if it ever arrived.

Our compromise car is this: Nissan Versa Note, 2014, Manual transmission.
 
Good on gas, affordable, basic and I have headroom.
