The only time you lose tons of range is when your towing.Yes! Seen it with the new Ferds. Those little cars do that on paper in perfect conditions. Try that on Friday night on Christmas Eve in New York City.
What kind of charger does one need to jam 70 miles of juice into the battery in 10 minutes? How much does a home installation cost?
In order for the battery to last, at what percentage do they normally charge them to? It's not 100%. Not even for the battery in your truck. What is it?
Home installation isn't that bad for a charger. Especially when your getting 7500 back it takes that burden out of it. It's like having a fuel station at your house.
You are not doing anything. The batteries and vehicle software take care of longevity. The range you get is the range you get. There is a reserve capacity that is not counted in the range and is the safety and longevity buffer.
Equinox ev and Silverado has a 8 year 100k battery warranty.
Ev longevity has come a long way. The bz4x which is not really a class leading product has bench marked 90% battery capacity after 10 years. https://insideevs.com/news/531990/toyota-bz4x-battery-capacity-durability/
Im more of a hybrid fan myself. Would love a diesel hybrid. But ev tech is finally at a point where it makes sense.
