Mostly it's 1-3 trips per day round trip around home, usually less than 10 miles round trip each and some less than 5.
These trips would require a charge stop once the battery is down to warranty replacement level in roughly 10 years. The warranty is for 8 years.
Are you OK with stopping for a charge? Or replacing the car in 8-12 years?
Leasing is more extreme version of this, by replacing the car in 2-3 years. Higher cost, but a almost new car all the time.viewtopic.php?f=17&t=27677#p547070
