IMHO: The enjoyment you gain in daily around town use will more than offset what you trade off by not using your EV for occasional road trips.

I'm just not gonna use my EV for long trips (200+ miles). However, they don't come up all that often. (Although I just took my i8 on a 1500 mile road trip, my Model-X is still my daily driver. I don't really consider my i8 to be an EV due to its very short range...)

In any case, Yellowstone has 6 EV charging stations: https://www.nps.gov/articles/evcharging.htm and other National Parks are adding them as well: https://www.nps.gov/articles/evstations.htm
