Porsche is looking to introduce a new way of measuring the range in EV's. Their new metric aims to identify just how far an electric vehicle can go in 24 hours with charging. They have yet to outline what this value will be for the production model, but have said that during testing they have consistently driven above 200km/h without seeing a big drop in range. https://insideevs.com/porsche-taycan-range-drive-24-hours/

System like these are great but will be even better if Porsche is constantly pulling information back from owners to improve Taycan every single model year.

I do think we need to move away from looking at range on a weekly basis to what used in a given day. With the ability to charge up from home, the issue only arises during longer road trips.

That and better planning our routes to where chargers are conveniently located.

Sophisticated mapping systems like Google Maps coupled with a Google Assistant type aid will help in finding them (destination based chargers) on the fly.

The coverage of EV charging stations has risen twofold over the past few years, and I would expect another big push as we move to the 2020's. I know Ionity has a new network in development and Shell is rolling out chargers at their petrol stations in Europe.

You would think that updating existing petrol stations would be cheaper and faster than building entirely new charging locations. I think the only issue is how much real estate they require.
