In exactly the same boat. Will consider an electric for our second car when its time to replace it, but the SUV will stay ICE for a long time. 500 miles of HWY range - regardless of temp/weather, in a 3 row, 4WD SUV is hard to beat.I think it will be, its just most people want what they want when they want it...and when they want it is usually right away.
I like a lot of what I read about Electric vehicles. The thought of buying one soon for our 'second' car has gone through my head a few times. But just as many others, while I want one, I want the range to be just a bit higher, I want charging outside of the home to be just a bit easier and faster, and charging in the home to also be a bit quicker.
Been saying it for years, but solid state batteries will be the inflection point for masses. It will solve the Range/Charging/Safety/Weight issues. Plus the charging infrastructure will be more robust by that time.
Pretty easy, tax the crap out of gas/fuel and have major incentives for eVehicles - per the wisdom of thte great state of California. People will always be influenced by their wallets - and a lot of people are short sighted.Then why are you buying a electric car?
