You are not typical. The other extreme is represented by the neighbors of mine when I lived in Marlborough , MA. The longest car trip they ever took was to Springfield MA. Roughly 70 miles one way. A Bolt charged at home only would serve 100% of their needs.
The important group of people now are the second 1%.
About 1% of vehicles sold are electric. What is needed to get to 2%? Once we get to 2%, the second 2% will be the key. What is needed to get to 4%? And so on.
I suspect you are in the last 10%. I don't pretend to see how the last 10% goes.
It is tedious to read people posting anecdotes as if they are majority or as you point out, the next likely adopters.
see my comments to WetEV - I've never claimed that I was a majority, but I do get tired of people telling me that a BEV would suit me or people like me now, when I know for a fact that it won't. I wouldn't bother sending suggestions in to Tesla for needed SC sites(and CAFCP for needed H2 fueling stations) to make their cars viable for people like me (such as the ones they've put in at Groveland, Fish Camp, Lone Pine, Topaz Lake, Mammoth, W. Yellowstone or Jackson) if I were okay with waiting for another dozen years or more.
