For me? Sure, i wouldnt say no to a BEV, but only as a second car. As the sole vehicle? No chance. Too many use-cases that wouldnt work for me.
Agree with all of that except the bit quoted here. I think the not-BEV will be the second car for most people. Most journeys and uses will be done by the BEV but the road trip, the Sunday blast around, the towing the horse trailer / caravan trips will be done by the second vehicle kept just for that purpose.
So BEV for the commute, the trip to the supermarket, picking up the kids etc.. Porsche/Mustang/Corvette/<sports car of choice. for the blast or the road trip, SUV for the trailer.
Obviously, those in rural locations are likely to be "late adopters" of BEV, where the urban residents are early adopters. And we're seeing this already, aren't we? The simple fact that the resources required are more readily located in urban environments than rural ones.
I have no doubt that there will be places in deepest rural USA, Australia, Russia, Canada, etc., that will be using ICE powered vehicles long after they have disappeared from the streets of New York, Sydney, Moscow, Montreal. That's to be expected.
