My credo
Its probably better to be self deprecating than self defecating.
Another problem is that our government spent 7.5 billion to update infrastructure and put in charging stations. After nearly 3 years... not a single charging station has been built.

This is why I believe that state & the fed govt. are gonna have to back-pedal on their "everything EV in the next decade" plan.. the infrastructure isn't there, the willingness of the public isn't there, and if certain claims are actually true... there just isn't enough material in the ground to mine to actually make all these batteries.

I think we're gonna have a choice for much longer than these dreamers would like... only time will tell.

They always talk about "price parity" being the magic bullet.

If price is the issue then why are 60k+ gas pickups the 1,2,3 selling vehicles in the country?

EV's wont be a real option untill they are everybit as convinenent as gas (5 minute refills), operate in a similar manner (as in, similar range loss to IC when towing, in temp extremes, etc) and have proven reliability.

This isnt even touching on charger availabilty/reliabilty, public perception, politicalization, etc.

Bare with me
On Feb. 10, 1885, Edward J. Claghorn was awarded the first patent for a seat belt, was more of a "safety harness" but was first

Seat belts have been used for 100+ years, in many types of vehicles and airplanes
In 1959, Nils Bohlin, an engineer at Volvo, created the familiar three-point seat belt that now greets you when you open your car door

Seat belts have been mandatory equipment since the 1968 model year per Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard 208
But you didn't have to use/wear them :)

There is no Federal Law that seat belts must be used/worn, just installed by car maker if vehicle is sold in the US after 1968

New York State passed the first law in the US mandating the use of seat belts in 1984
It's totally a State decision in whether of not seat beats are mandatory
And States have different Laws about it
Some are Primary, so police can pull over a vehicle if officer thinks seat belt is not in use
Some are Secondary, so a police officer can not pull over a car because he thinks seat belts are not in use but CAN issue a ticket for no seat belts if he sees that after the stop

And this is SEAT BELTS and the government, just adding a few bolts and belts to an already designed vehicle

There will be no mandatory EVs for car buyers
There will be Federal Laws passed, and postponed, you can bet on that, that's what politicians do, thats what they are suppose to do

There is no "battle" between EV and ICE
People just make that stuff up then print it, silly, the down side of the internet

Crossed threads are tight threads.
Pretty soon I'll be on the news weaving through HWY US 101 traffic on horseback.
