    Not with the cost of the battery being more than that. We will probably see some 10k evs in the resale market eventually but I’m not sure we will ever see 10k or even sub 15k in the new vehicle market.

      Ive seen high mileage leafs and bolts come down to that range. They may be theoretically due for battery replacement, but its a bit of a wild west about when that’s actually required, so probably still a lot of utility at that price.

      That’s why I think we should go with a petrol or a hybrid car. Mileage would be so good that it will tide over the gap until we figure out how to make batteries economically viable.

        Tell us you don’t understand economics without telling us.

        Also, tell us you haven’t been paying attention to evs without telling us.

        There are a couple of new chemistries that should be in vehicles soon that are from more abundant and lower cost ingredients.

        Just like everything else over the centuries, the first iterations of a brand new technology are going to be a lot more expensive than some of us would like. Over time with enough demand and development that price will fall as it’s already doing with ev batteries just not fast enough for some of you whiners.
