How much electric-car range is ‘enough’? 300 miles much better than 200 miles: survey

Electric-car drivers know that range anxiety abates quickly once you start using an electric car and get confident with its abilities.

Although a range of 60 to 90 miles covers the majority of daily car use in the U.S., it isn’t enough for many drivers with longer commutes—especially at high speeds or in very hot or cold weather, which can cut rated range by 30 percent or more. More
