As you ignored, BEV and PHEVs are growing at a fairly steady rate. Problems with charging are solvable. The future doesn't need to be New Urbanism and bicycles.
Everyone I know who has an ev charges at home.
Which, as previously noted, is an example of self-selection - those in the best position to benefit from a PEV are the ones who've chosen to do so. Why is this fact unexpected or controversial?
downeykp wrote:GRA just figures everyone lives in an apartment and does not have access to a plug. Most people I know have garages. Charging for them is not a problem. At least the ev owner has options when charging. If they cant do it at home they can charge at the tens of thousands charging stations all over the country.
I don't 'figure' everyone else lives in an apartment; the stats show that most urban dwellers worldwide live in apartments, condos, town/rowhouses. The U.S. is an exception to this, and even here, 44% (inverse % from Plug-in America survey that said 56% of U.S. households can charge at home) can't charge at home. Are you seriously suggesting that tens of thousands of charging points are sufficient to cover 44% of the 275 million vehicle fleet in this country? They can be added, but the process will be slow and expensive.

That's like saying that gas stations will never be able to provide for the entire fleet. If H2 is a commercial success, they can obviously do so, not that I've ever suggested that they need to, because BEVs will make up a large but unknown % of the total fleet.

Ah, number two this year for accusations of being anti-ev; that's about the average. Of course, that ignores all the posts I make that could only be considered pro-EV (which includes FCEVs), but oh, well.
