I think the dealer is a jerk - like so many - and I would cancel the order. Shortly there will be plenty of them for sale. Actually you may want to consider a PHEV instead. The new Prius Prime gets about 40 miles as a pure EV with about 600 miles range and no charging anxiety. EPA has it rated as one of the highest MPGe on the market!
Have you ever driven a PHEV? I have. That 40miles of electric range is about 35miles. Have a read in the Mitsu Outlander PHEV forums. Yikes. Factor in cold/hot weather, weight of passengers etc...and you're down to about 25-28 tops. My neighbor a few doors down has a 2021 and bitches about the EV range of it. He is also waiting for an ID4. To each their own so good luck on your decision.

That's a needlessly pessimistic opinion.

My 2012 Chevy Volt has a stated electric range of something like 35 miles. But it's just like any other EV: In the Winter on a highway it's more like 25 miles and on a sunny Spring day driving at 40 MPH on relatively-level country roads, we've managed 52 miles.
Then buy another Volt and move on with your life.
