The big expensive SUVs with their high powered engines are bigger emitters than the likes of a Mazda CX5 - one Range Rover Sport can emit as much as two and a bit CX5s. So getting buyers of those types of SUVs into an EV equivalent is of some benefit.
Obviously, lower priced EV SUVs are also important, since there were 2800 CX-5's registered last year vs 417 Range Rover Sports.
Yes,but we are talking drop in a bucket of what is already just drops. Very high hanging fruit there.
Can't get the cheaper EVs without the expensive ones paving the way.
