My wife's son-in-law works for a dentist down Oklahoma that has more money than 
sense.  He has done well investing in lots of different businesses.  He bought 
a Chevy Volt for his employees to use as a company car.  One weekend the 
dentist had to have some work done on his Bentley so he decided to drive the 
Volt for the weekend.  I am not sure of the details, but he did something to it 
where it sat all night either running or the lights on and it ended up killing 
the batteries.  Cost him $3500 to repair.

You forgot "evacuate from a hurricane, requiring hours and hours creeping along 
in a traffic jam with AC blasting".  No Tesla would make it. Many cars need 
refueling during such an event.  The demise of the internal combustion engine 
has been predicted many times....
