Is there a supply shortage of new EV's? I thought it was low volume due to high prices?
I know Nissan stopped selling the NZ-new Leaf here because nobody was buying them at 60K when you could get a used post-Japanese subsidy one for half the price. It seems all the EV's sold here are in the 60k range which surely dampens the demand quite a bit.
The Nissan Leaf sells well in countries with an EV subsidy, so I don't think there is any supply shortage.
Again, can someone explain to me why we should take taxpayer money that could go towards upgrading PT infrastructure and give it to people who are able to afford new cars.
