in the 1920's and 30s running out of gas was a problem too.  Before there were service stations you had to buy gas in town at a hardware store.  

 

I imagine as Electrics become more common, you will see wreckers with a rapid jump battery kit, you will see more Level 3 chargers, and drivers will be more careful about how they handle the risks.

30 minutes to charge for a 200 mile distance for a car costing $90,000 a pop? That may be fine for city purposes but not for cross-country distances. Then again would you take a luxury car on a long road trip?

With Telsa's nationwide charging network, perhaps this not be a big deal after all.

I think you're right, Cabe. Owners might be not be inclined to take their $90,000 cars on a cross-country roadtrip.
