The biggest difference between an EV and a gas-powered vehicle is the attention you have to pay to driving range. From my first 84-miles-per-charge Leaf, I upgraded to an all-electric Toyota Rav4 SUV, which had a range of 103 miles. Three years later, I got the Chevy Bolt that we still drive now, which can go 238 miles between charges (the latest Bolt goes 259). These cars all cost roughly the same amount, but in six short years the range nearly tripled and will continue to improve. In the United States, the typical driver covers 40 miles a day, so the average EV has plenty of range to spare.
Long-distance road trips are another thing altogether. Driving a gas-powered vehicle, you can expect to go 300 miles or more on a full tank, and when you run low you can rely on a network of roughly 168,000 gas stations nationwide. Depending on where you live, you can currently expect to pay about $2.50 to $3.50 a gallon. A long drive in an EV requires more planning, because the network of public charging stations still has gaps, and the rates you pay can be confusing to first-time EV drivers.
The night before we leave, I plug the E-Tron into the home charger that I've been using for the past decade. Nearly every day, I plug in my Bolt before I go to bed, and in the morning it has way more range than I'll use that day.
