The unavoidable issue for buying a vehicle to cover 100% of your use cases, it's going to have some capability you don't need 99% of the time. For a lot of people, that's going to be battery capacity.In the near-term, definitely. As infrastructure improves, more people convert to EV, and range anxiety becomes less of a thing, I would think the size/weight of extended range packs would become superfluous. Maybe tow rigs would need the extra capacity, but the everyday user could potentially be a-ok with 200-250 miles of range.
My everyday EV doesn't need more than 200 miles to cover 99% of my every day use cases, but there are things I'd like to do, and would be doing, that I am not doing because I couldn't do it with my current EV. I am buying a Rivian to cover those additional use cases that I'm still not totally sure are going to be covered with the large pack vs max pack. If I was never more than 5 miles from a 350kW DCFC it would probably be a different story, but I think expecting that in the next 5 years is optimistic.
