I pass a Tesla dealership going to work. During the winter, just about every morning it was below 10*, the alarms would be going off on almost every car in the lot
At least, with a hybrid, you have the gas back up.
I have to believe having to replace the battery pack every 7-10 years kills the trade in/resale. I keep my trucks an average of 10 years and 200,000 to 300,000 miles. Could one get 300,000 miles out of a battery pack? What's the value of a 10 year old EV with it's original battery pack? I will never be convinced that the EV market will flourish. The only EV that has withstood the test of time is the Tesla and it is only 2% of the automotive market. The entire EV push is reminiscent of the VW Bug and I won't go into that history. The EV market will eventually go by the wayside like every other EV already has, minus Tesla.
