It's not a misconception, it's a matter of what I want.This is a popular misconception, why do you need a 15 minute fill up when you can plug in in seconds in the evening at home? A model 3 is so efficient it can get something like 5miles per hour plugged in pulling 12amps from a 15amp 120volt wall outlet, plugged in for 10 hours a night that would be enough for a 50mile commute. Charging wise, the 3 at a superchargerdepending on the battery can soak up as much as 150kw at lower charge levels which works out to like 650mph charge rate which falls as the battery fills.
So in a roadtrip a food and bathroom break of 20-30minutes can mean 200-270miles or range added. Granted it is not 3 minutes for 400miles like a gas car but better than most of you expect.
I do not want a vehicle I have to plug in for 10 hours to go 50 miles.
I like how I can spend less than 15 minutes, fill up my car and be able to travel 400 miles or so before needing to refill. I don't want a seperate much more expensive car just to drive to work and around town in in. I like just hopping in whatever daily driver I have and taking road trips when I feel like it and never worrying about whether I'll be stranded because of not having anywhere to fill up or having to wait a long time to do it.
If I'm going to spend my money on an electric vehicle and I still have a choice then it needs to be what I want or it's going to be the gas vehicle.
I see on the Tesla map for chargers here https://www.tesla.com/findus?bounds=54.3280328157084,-57.079102750000004,21.92058674478928,-141.45410275&zoom=5&filters=store,service,supercharger,destination charger that there is currently 1 station with 6 chargers 12 miles away from me. The next closest one is about 90 miles away with 8 chargers. That is exactly what I am talking about. They need many more before I would even consider an electric vehicle. They are building more in my area so that's good but still they have a long long way to go.
