LAPD’s unused electric cars gather dust sitting in garage, but why?

What deserved more exploration than it received is why the cars weren’t used in regular rotation: What were the problems that led LAPD users to ignore them?
Only a single line during the 5-segment addresses that: “Sources say some personnel are reluctant to use the electric cars because they can only go 80 to 100 miles on a charge.”

While devoted BMW i3 drivers will differ, that range anxiety probably isn’t unlikely among LAPD personnel—just as among the public at large—especially those with lengthy, time-consuming commutes from less-expensive communities.
