Not in the first 1% of BEV drivers, or the first 2%, or 4%, or 8%, or 16%, or 32%, but sometime after 64%. I'd hazard a guess of 2030 or later. After most new cars are BEVs.GRA wrote: ↑Tue Jul 21, 2020 10:10 pmSo yeah, I win this argument. The QC infrastructure off interstates generally, and on this route specifically, lacks both the reliability and redundancy to be depended on to get me to my destination, and do so in the least amount of time and with minimum inconvenience.
I've been hoping it won't be that long. I've been waiting for almost a decade already. I retain some limited hope that one of the two and its infrastructure will be acceptable by 2025, but looking at all the forecasts that seems optimistic.
An FCHEV could do the job now given the infrastructure, if the prices (car and fuel) were right. OTOH, if we get rid of the Dumpster (104 days to election, but who's counting) and the Dems take control of the Senate, who knows?
