Completely Agree.If it ever gets on the road. It's not really a form/function design. More lets build a wild and crazy vehicle. It will do wonders for reruns of "Damnation Alley", the CT's model. Given global warming trends, by the time the CT comes out, it may be operating in the same environment as its progenitor.
I just drove from PHL to CLT ~560 miles. I had few problems hitting charging stations along the way. At one location I drove up to two people complaining about their BEV. They both had cars with 220 miles of range and were both driving NYC to ATL. They had rentals!?! and were livid about how often they had to stop because of lack of charging infrastructure. Also one vehicle didn't have a fast charger... So they could only get ~120-150 miles per leg and had to wait quite awhile to charge.
After that experience, being able to go 200 miles seemed like a luxury.
Three big takeaways from that trip (and having the R1T for almost 2 months):
1) You'll most likely not be full when you have to drive it
2) The access to 150kW chargers is not likely and the R1T has a big battery so it takes awhile to charge
3) Real world usability of mileage is dependent on infrastructure
With a smaller battery, you'll be charging for 20-45 min more often (the last 10% of charge is slow and can take over an hour if you want to get to 100%) and you wont get the full "range" due to charging station proximity.
Besides big trips, sometimes you do a lot of driving for a few days in a row with lack of access to good charging infrastructure. You should get the bigger battery. I've already been stuck where I had to unexpectedly tow something when my battery was less than 50%. It certainly takes some extra planning.
