Respectfully, here's a bona fide dismissive for you. It's ludicrous for you to imply that I don't care for any kind of debate about concerns about EVs--or any other new tech for that matter. It's a natural part of the evolution of a product. No new tech has ever been primetime-ready as a V1 fresh-out of the box. It evolves over time. We're now at a point where EVs are beating IC engines on the racetracks. What do you think that foretells for range, safety, etc. in the future? Improves with every iteration, and ultimately the old technology becomes chuckle-worthy.And, respectfully, this is dismissive attitude that drives me crazy, especially when people bring up legitimate concerns about EVs. Instead of prompting discussion, people who have concerns about EVs are simply regarded as “not liking change.”
To be clear, I do like change, especially when it’s a positive change. But, at least as of today, an EV doesn’t fit my lifestyle well. And I resent that I’m going to be forced to buy one in the future based on mandates, if I want a new vehicle. Maybe in the future there will be a model out there that is compelling to me and a fit for my use case.
Rest assured, viewing through skeptical lens is healthy. Ask questions. Do research. Discuss on forums like this. But the funny thing is how hard some people (perhaps not you? I wouldn't know) work to defend the status quo and actively look for ways to defeat the inevitable. That's my point. I don't even care much about it. It's just an observation and it's human nature. It won't change. Sorry you were offended and were "driven crazy". I have no idea why.
I don't have an EV, and probably won't have one for years. But I know it's coming and I'll laugh with the kids about the good ol' days with the kids.
