D. With charging EV charging stations spring up like mushrooms "range anxiety" will be a thing or the past ...."
There are routes with good distributions of chargers, such as the I-5 which are touted to make range worry a non-issue.http://www.westcoastgreenhighway.com/el ... ghways.htm
I don't see that as realistic.
If I wanted to drive from Ashland Oregon (home) the 380 miles to Portland, even if I had the level3 charging option, to would in a best case type analysis take 6 stops at 30 minutes each on what via my ICE is a 4 hour drive.
(Let's not get off topic to what a sin it is that there's no high speed, or even usable conventional rail, transport on the whole route between LA and Seattle
I don't even seriously consider used the EV for my twice a year driving up the freeway the 50 miles to Grants pass and back.
What's more...The irony on this much touted green highway is that as more people use it the less practical it will become. Because if I pull in to my planned charging stop and you have just plugged in I will have two wait an hour just to begin charging.
It's nominally "working" right now because there are so few EVs and even fewer trying to drive more than one full charge trips with their EVs.
Breakthroughs or evolution in battery capacity or charging rate may lay range anxiety to rest but this green highway in Preston form won't
