Which isn’t very helpful if you need to visit places that don’t have good access to transit.
For example my parents live in a small town about 30 minutes away by car. If I were to visit them by public transport that would be a 2+ hour journey. On a weekday. Most of my visits are on Sundays and that’s a whole different story. It would practically be impossible to visit them without taking a day off work.
When you want to go out of town, either you take a train or bus, or if it's out into nature / rural areas with poor bus service - you rent a car. Some cities even have a "car pool renting" service, e.g. car2go: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Car2go
I'm not saying that it's insurmontable, just that price is not the only thing that stops people from buying electric right now.
