I think it would be really convenient if the EV's could be equipped with a tow package that could tow a luggage style trailer that was equipped with additional batteries and luggage space for long distance travelers. The trailer could be designed to have a wiring harness to plug into a receptacle on the vehicle and a switch or breaker in the vehicle could be switched to use the alternate power source once the vehicles batteries are low. I assume this would be a bit expensive for some, but I think this could be something that could be set up to be a rental kind of like u- haul rentals, or an option to buy. I assume that the current range on these EV's restrict a lot of potential consumers. Specially with the lack of infrastructure across the country.
