Watts it called? "highway speeds and a 200km range"... Sorry, for many "urban", 21st-Century folks it's a "foreign concept".
Where "high speed" travels (on land, using a wheeled vehicle) involves "beating the competition" ie options like the horseless carriage ("car"), pubic transportation (sp?) vehicles... etc.
... so in "EV-terms" one might ask "Hard to pedal?"... and lots of empty seats? ... plenty of (empty) cargo spaces?
... and might conclude that any "large" and "heavy" vehicle (that you can't assist by pedaling from starts, up hills/against gravity/etc.) is probably not the "best" in "saving money" terms. Alternatively, one can spend LOTS of money and forego stuff like vacations...etc. ... and etc.
ES changed my life (for the waaaaay better).
