The competition for EVs is 2nd hand cars that can do 500km on a tank with no issuescost $110 to drive 500km vs. $15, leaving you with an additional $95 in your pocket to spend on holidaying.
And, these arguments over the suitability of EV's are all redundant. They suit some people perfectly, they dont suit others. Same applies to 3 door shopping baskets and 5 door SUV behemoths.
I'm not sure why there is so much antiness about them. They are a choice, they have benefits, they suit some, not others. 100% the same as every other car that has been produced
