I presently own a 1999 Ford Explorer that is fully loaded. It has 300K miles on it and I am afraid it will be going wheels up one of these days just when we need it most. I have looked at EV's but they just do not seem to fit what I need. We drive from Las Vegas to Sacramento four times a year, that is about 600+ miles there and another 600 back not to mention, driving another 200 or more miles in Sacramento. Looking at the mileage of Ev's they just will not cut it. I need something that I can drive 300 miles, stop and "fill up" or "recharge" in about 15 minutes (average time to go to the bathroom and buy snacks) and drive on down the road. Plus most of the EV's I have seen do not have the cargo space that my Explorer does. I need to carry a dog cage, walker, suitcases, and coolers among other things. As I said my Explorer is fully loaded and came with every bell and whistle back when it was new and I have grown accustomed to the comfort. My 70 year old body doesn't like to rough it any more. How does the A/C do on the EV's? A lot of the road between Vegas and Sac is hot desert. And there are mountains that have to be climbed, will an EV have the power to handle those? My Explorer has the 302 v-8 and still has lots of power. Anyway tell me why a EV would be a good choice for me and my wife.
