but the pure electric car isn't going to be ready until a) massive updates to the power grid b) swappable batteries c) battery tech that lets cars go 500-1000 miles on a charge.
Why the boolean logic?
In case you hadn't noticed, pure electric cars are stomping the ever loving crap out of the luxury/performance car market. So long as the cars are selling at a growing pace, they are here to stay and are ready for the people who continue to buy them.
And as long as this happens, manufacturers will make continuing improvements to the cars they make.
A) The power grid is constantly being worked on. As people buy more cars, the grid will be upgraded to match demand.
B) Swappable batteries might be one of those improvements. But they don't seem to be required, at least not yet.
C) 1000 miles on a charge? Show me any common car that gets anything like that range.
Lots of people expect the world to change all of a sudden. But it doesn't really. Instead, continuing incremental changes gradually make the world into a different place. Those incremental changes have rather drastically changed how people interact in just the 30 or so years that I can personally remember.
