I currently have an Audi E-Tron and the only difference between that and the A8 I had previously is the time it takes to charge vs filling it with petrol but for the most part that happens while I am sitting at an office desk instead of a gas station and charging systems are improving all the time.

With regard to a military vehicle it would probably make sense to use modular fuel packs where spent fuel packs are simply replaced with full ones in the field.
EV's have lower range than a gas car and you don't get the sweet sound of the engine

The gap is closing with regards to range as batteries improve and chargers become more efficient and I would suggest that not having a lot of noise is a plus from a military sense.
