The problem is everyone who wants an EV already has one. Many who wanted one and got one, ended up not liking them and traded them in where they sit on car lots for 9 months.

        Not surprising. People who buy used don't do it for the sake of buying used, they do it cause it's affordable and at the back of their head the life span of the vehicle is calculated into the price.
        Everyone is thinking
        >I'm poor as dirt, but still need a car. If i spend x $, how long would this 10y old heap of junk last
        With EVs you get the battery problem
        >If i buy this used, how long before the battery needs to be replaced
        That's the major issue with the used EV market - I can spend 300 dollar on engine from a scrapp yard mazda 6 and put in in my mazda 3, the used tesla owner can't do that with a battery .

            They got/get HOV lane access and more tax incentives. Traffic here is so genuinely awful that most of them coming with some form of advanced cruise control was a big selling point. No risk of overheating in pavement-for-miles heat island hell. Lotta money in tech/finance/venture capital/other shit to be made and be spent. GIGANTIC POPULATION as well, so the number is obviously inflated. They're just "oh another car" level of common, but not so common they're the main thing I see splitting lanes on my way home.

            That's due to cheap Canadian oil. Canada just opened the Trans Mountain pipeline which will cause West Coast gas prices to fall and the rest of the US to go up.

            Real answer, charging network is dog shit in most areas still. Even places that have charging stations might only have a few super chargers in some grocery store lot that don't work half the time. Or they're exclusive to a hotel, apartment, or other venue like a golf course.

    The only good EVs are older leafs because they have a solid aftermarket and even if the range is enough for 99% of people everyone still wants the option to drive 400mi at the drop of a hat.
    The only way I see charging in apartments getting fixed is electric utilities start working with building owners or installing off street parking stalls that get billed to your electric bill.

          How in the frick do you figure? The graph resembles an exponential growth trend, meaning that not only is the total cumulative sales number increasing, it's increasing at an increasing rate.

      I believe compact EV make the least sense, ironically enough. a compact 90hp Renault Zoe weighs as much as a midsize sedan like the newst 190hp 3 series, 1600kg. so if you need to scale up the batterypack you need a bigger chassis anyway which leads to fullsize sedan or suvs. not to mention handling, tear and wear on small EV is abysmal they have shit turning radius, cant corner and you cant use them as bumpercars think city parking.

    If you want to increase demand, you need on street parking chargers, easily replaceable batteries, and ranges above 400 miles (For some reason people really, really care about that)
