Because the hybrid solution isn't the best - it's no better than a slightly more fuel-efficient car.

Add to that the fact that hybrids have both electric and petrol engines - so there is more maintenance and more things that could go wrong. Compare to a pure EV which has no need for spark plugs, exhaust, transmission, catalytic converters, etc....

Who cares how many electric charging stations there are when an EV driver wakes up every day with full range? Unlike petrol and hydrogen, where no filling stations results in your vehicle becoming a very heavy paperweight, EVs can take advantage of existing electricity networks and outlets. Fast charging stations are a bonus, not a necessity.
