Yes, I know that anything relatively new has an elevated price in order to recoup the cost associated with development, setup of the manufacturing, etc, etc. Would think that the simplicity of the EV and the associated batteries would be comparable in price to the ICE auto which require thousands of components.
Hopefully, the ever increasing price of gasoline which is generally going to countries that are hostile to the US will cause many Americans to wake up and see the advantages of promoting what is in our own best interest. Think we still have the talent in this country to develop sources of nonpolluting energy. Feel our talent base is being rapidly destroyed by the 'dumbing down of America' process which is so widespread.
Environmental concerns surrounding the standard gasoline filling stations should cause them to quickly jump on the recharging bandwagon which seems to be dominated by local governments. There are groups, plug-in-America for example, which are leading the charge to minimize the range anxiety associated EV's.
