Nope. Tax credits run out and it's over.
Price of a kWh of battery keeps falling. The energy stored in a Kg of battery keeps rising. Battery chemistry is complex, and as we do more, we learn more, as we learn more we can do more.
The point to the tax credits is kickstart that virtuous cycle. Tax credits are useful today, but will not matter when fully electric cars are cheaper to buy than gasoline cars. With no tax credits. Projections have this by 2025 or so. Total cost of ownership is cheaper for an electric for many cases today. Fuel can be a lot cheaper, depending on local electric rates, less maintenance and more convenient. Electric cars are just better, and just keep getting better.
Fastest car ever up Pike's Peak was an electric. Round the 'Ring? Just a matter of time before an electric owns that record for good as well. Yes, a hybrid took it back. Longer distances? A matter of time, mostly.
Enjoy your slow, smelly, noisy gasoline golf cart.
