Not relevant if you can't afford to build the infrastructure at your house.Anybody who still holds that ICEVs are better than BEVs have not driven a Taycan yet, and they should do so.

Summarized in the Hill
Some EV owners are not satisfied.
You can pay the money and read the report, down load the data sets, or read the Hill summary.
Simple, 5 years of studying CA buyers indicates 18% of EV buyers dumped their EVs for gas and 20% for plug in hybrids. Looks like it focuses on lack of 240V service. And since the Tesla owners are less likely to bail out than the cheaper EVs, maybe it has to do with income inequality since you have to sink more into household infrastructure bring in the electrician, get the permit, and create the 240V service. Or put more simpler, EVs are for the rich based on the five years of surveys along with the problem of those not living in single family homes.
Why would anyone without a driveway buy an EV? There is no guaranteed place to park and how do you plug the thing in? So weird.
