I actually bet more potential EV owners are put out by the cost of the car initially than anything else. I always hear about long trip anxiety but they have these places where you can go and rent a gas car pretty cheaply for long trips. I have even heard of people doing that so they don't put miles on their regular car! Crazy.
But when you can buy a reliable used car for $10K it's hard for me to justify going out and dropping 30K for a new EV car.
