We are not only talking apples and oranges with the cars, we are also talking apples and oranges with the driving conditions which play a roll in the design and driving dynamics of vehicles. Typically North American vehicles were designed and marketed for the long distances between destinations, while that has changed somewhat in the last 30 years, that culture is still prevalent. I have driven in the UK on one lane roads with pull overs at skinny little bridges, that would not cut it in North America. Your A1 is 410 miles long, that would not even get me out of British Columbia (640 miles wide). Our friends from the Toronto area are diving one of their Teslas (either their S or the 3 not sure which) out to BC for a visit this August. They will travel more than 2000 miles one way. Oh and Petro Canada has DC fast charging stations approx. every 200 miles across Canada, not to mention most hotels have at lease 2 level 2 chargers that can be reserved.
