Driving an electric vehicle is a lot of fun. They drive super smooth because when you accelerate the car doesn't have to go through the herky-jerky motion of switching gears. Plus, they also save you a ton of money on gas and are great for the environment.
The only problem is the dreaded range anxiety. While the more expensive lines of electric cars can get you around 250 miles per charge, more affordable models still linger in the 150-mile range.
That makes road trips difficult because you have to pull find a fast charger every few hours; then, wait for the car to power up for 45 minutes or so before heading out for the next few hundred miles. That is, of course, if you can find a fast charger.
