Whereas I see the opposite, the longer the drive, the greater the cost savings of a BEV will be realized. BEVs are the perfect long distance car. Get groceries with gas, road trip with a BEV.That's that same reason I don't expect BEVs to sell well in rural areas.
The more remote someone is, and needing to make long drives, I think the more likely they stick with the safety and security of gas fuel.
"Safety and security" is electricity, clearly.
