A lot of the slow growth of the EV market has to do with uninformed opinions. Things that impede growth of the segment include: - thinking charging takes longer than it does - assuming there is a lack of charge stations - sometimes but not always true. - assuming EV Range is shorter than it is today - thinking EV cars are too expensive - for the most part this is true - "knowing" batteries will deteriorate in a couple of years. This comes from assuming EV batteries will behave like cell phone batteries - nearly no truth to this - "old school" effects. I know ICE and I'm sticking with it. - I'm sure there are more reasons... One of the things I've been thinking about is those that consider their ICE to be extremely fast in accelerating, and thinking EVs are slow. Once this crowd begins to be beaten by some of the EVs on the market they will begin to see the light. They will make the switch based completely on "my car is faster than your car," mentality. ICE cars have been pushed to their limit for over 100 years, and EV is in its infancy. Even today many EVs are faster than track ready ICE cars. I listen daily to the podcast EV News Daily with Martin Lee. That plus Fully Charged tells me electric cars are quite inevitable and are coming in many forms starting about 2020. Just about every manufacturer (where's Toyota?) are putting some form of electrification into some percentage of their fleet; many are pure EV. Behind the scenes large manufacturers are quietly selling off manufacturing rights for ICE related components and building new lines ready for electric cars, trucks, and SUVs. Ford and VW just signed an agreement to share the VW line which will help cut costs for both companies. I don't know where the inflection point will hit but governments and manufacturers are going down paths that can't be ignored.
