Our friend has a Tesla S (he is a fan), yet he has a lead foot too. With his style of driving 300 miles only last for 150 real miles. Basically if he wants to go someplace that is more than 75 miles he needs to plan his trip and charge to get back home. Not fun. Or - drive slower - then he gets home just fine, but ..... driving slow is not fun either. No matter how you put it - it's not for everyone. If you take current population of drivers - maybe 25% can theoretically benefit using Tesla (in reality it will be much less than that). And that is financial issues aside
