What I find baffling is this: if theoretically Rex on BEV gets much more adoption and most BEV w/Rex owners use the Rex say 10% of the time how is this WORSE than if they stuck to an ICE 100% of the time due to range concerns? I'm sorry I just don't get it and I am not trying to be obtuse.
If gasoline is your position, why are you challenging me? I don't need gasoline AT ALL, and do not promote gasoline usage. I do not promote the methods used to procure that gasoline, or the environmental damage that results from its use.
I can get a sense of pessimism from you concerning EVs in general, calling longer range cars "potential" when in fact I'm driving a longer range EV than any proposed.
I don't agree with your premise that hybrids are what will bring mass adoption of "EVs". I predict that a robust, dependable, ubiquitous DC charger infrastructure and 200-300 mile range cars will be the answer.
We fundamentally disagree, both in what EVs with proper infrastructure can do, as well as your tacit support of the oil industry that I fundamentally do not support.
Good luck promoting gasoline cars (or hydrogen cars) on a forum devoted to an EV.
