A common experience. And far from being a side-note. I think that epiphany is going to end up selling a lot of EVs as time goes on as more and more people relate the experience of the time they "went back" to a gasoline car.
Suggest to a 20-something to wear a wristwatch. They get uncomfortable coming into your house if they know you've got a "land line". Pretty soon gasoline cars will be on their list of dowdy technology.
Yes - with a real-life example. I have two kids with learner's permits. Both have done 98% or so of their driving in the LEAFs. They see the ICE cars as dirty, noisey and with less responsive engines.
