Stop promoting it as some kind of panacea when it is not.
It is a long long way from being mainstream if ever.
It is neither more eco friendly than the ICE and it certainly is no where as convinient to own and operate.
95 percent of the market is not interested in it and 75 percent can't afford one.
You want one buy one I could care less.
You just added nonsensical in your own post. To suggest 95 percent arenít interested and 75 percent canít afford one is just not true.
If and when an EV is made that matches or nearly matches the capabilities of an ICE tow vehicle, and does so for a similar cost, then much of the market will be very interested. Given the top of line Tesla Cybertruck will match the capabilities of the 250/2500 ICE vehicles, and do so at or below the price of those vehicles (depending on trim chosen), the timeframe for that change is now 2-3 years away.
The real decision people will face is whether they are willing to spend more time recharging than they would filling up with fuel. If that doesnít bother the buyer, then the decision gets very easy.
For me, I donít mind the extra wait, and if I am at a campground, donít mind recharging at the post.
They are a real option, and people will buy and use them in large numbers. Likely not you, but I know you will have a hard time arguing that they donít work once they are on the market.
