Can't refute anything, so just dismiss it, right? O.K., back to cranking-up your PC clock speed to possibly mine the next blockchain.
You know your comment made no sense, right? One doesn't crank up their PC clock speed to mine blocks on any blockchain - it's more about the random number generator. One also doesn't find any useful information about EVs from Seeking Alpha. One doesn't waste time refuting cargo on a garbage truck. Batteries are just fine for long trips as long as one can charge them - that's how my smart can travel beyond it's max range and how Teslas can travel coast to coast. We've had EVs since the 1800s - this isn't new. The article's crap and you're still a troll best left on ignore.
Andy, Edmund's experiences described in the Seeking Alpha article using a Model X for long-distance towing aren't crap, they are a real-world demonstration of the lack of practicality of that (or really any current BEV) and the available infrastructure for towing. The limited range, long charging times, spacing of SCs and especially the lack of pull-through charging spots are all significant handicaps that make the car extremely poorly suited for the job for anyone for whom time and hassle are constraints, and that's most people. Some of these are fixable, but some (currently) aren't.
