EVs can be fine as a little commuter car to travel the five miles to work and back, to be then plugged in overnight.
But there are indeed problems. You simply can’t use them for road trips. And in an emergency, they may well leave you stranded. With a hurricane coming! And what if there are power outages?
BUT, they are indeed “torquey”and fun to drive. That is, if you can just not think of the child slaves that strip-mined the cobalt needed for your batteries so you can sleep at night!
