Is the townie bike a goodie bike?

My wife would like a new bike. She really loves the Electra bikes (she really wants the Petro Zillia
but found the Townie 21
much more comfortable).
We went to a different bike shop and the guy there explained that she would not enjoy those bikes on long rides and would not be able to keep up with people on hybrids over the long haul.
Does anyone have any experience with these bikes and are they good for more than just going to the grocery store? Will she be able to keep up on longer rides (road/bike path)?
