This has nothing to do with EVs. You could say the same about ICE cars. And yet somehow we manage

Still don't see what your point is. Has society ground to a halt because of it?

You could apply the same logic to gas cars My car gets about the same range with a full tank of gas as an electric car gets on a full charge, but I've managed to get through life without ever running out of gas Plus, it'd be way easier for me to not run out of charge if I could charge my car at home while I sleep. Whereas I have no way to get gas in my car without physically taking it to a gas station

This is the biggest reason I love our EV. Always a "full tank of gas" waiting for us. My pickup truck seems to always be at or below 1/4 tank whenever I go to use it.

Charge never lasts as long as you hope it will.

Eventually, EVs will become the norm; right now they are just win-more passes for the affluent with extra Tax write-offs, anytime carpool lane access, and front of the building charge parking at most stores and offices.

most stores and offices you sure about that? I've never actually seen an EV charging station IRL

I like never going to gas stations and my garage smells good. No oil changes (no oil) it's great too

It must be nice not to be tempted to spend your money on overpriced sports drinks and gas station Viagra. And being so rich that your car owns a house that it sleeps in every night, unlike our filthy hobo cars that stay on the streets.

Garages in northern climates are extremely common.

So when I quit smoking, I quit going to the gas station every day. It's amazing how a pack of cigarettes turned into a candy bar and a monster. Oh, hey, 2 for $5!? That's a deal! Reeses 3 for $5? Sure! Turned into $20 dollars a day at the gas station real easy.

people try to get through the day with a 13% charge on their cell phone. No they don't. Everyone uses their phones during the day and then charges them at night or when they aren't using them. If we had charging stations in like every car park then it wouldn't be an issue.

Electric vehicle 13 percent would be around 100km daily considering 1000 km mileage per charge

Even a Tesla only gets 400-800km on a charge
