I strongly suspect that once BEVs get a foot hold in the market most cars will max out with a 40-50kWh or so battery.
I suspect you are close. The truly large batteries will be reserved for the expensive luxury-type vehicles, and the smaller/economical vehicles will have a more reasonable ~50kWh battery. But this can only happen after QCs become ubiquitous. In the mean time, particularly for the next-generation EVs, we need as large of a battery as possible. In most parts of the world, once you leave your garage you are one your own. You basically better be carrying enough energy on board to get you to your destination and/or back home.
