Latest survey still doesn't look good for EVs.

In 2024, 46 percent of Americans remain in the “not too likely/not at all likely” camp, whereas 21 percent responded that they are “extremely likely/very likely” to purchase an EV the next time they buy a car.
I don't consider the inverse or contrary to "not too likely" to be "extremely likely".
What happens to the other 33% of the people?

If the goal was to get or present accurate information, the wording should have been much more definitive.
It could have been as simple as: from 1 to 10, 1 being I definitely will not buy an EV and 10 being I definitely will buy and EV, what number would you choose?

Not looking good for the EV sales push.

Just wait until they really raise the cost of gasoline.

If the Government agenda is to get rid of ICE vehicles, the citizens opinions won't matter.

Insurance companies can simply stop insuring or charge outrageous fees.

My guess is that EV's will become more not less popular.

More that 20 Tesla's got sold out of Mohegan Sun Casino yesterday. All were pre-sold. We had to wait nearly a month for the car.

No facts just opinion.

How is that not a fact? I assume you can count, there were no cars left just sitting there, they would have had to be pre sold or they would not have been shipped, and you have stated previously that you had to wait a month for it to be delivered.
Definitely sounds like facts to me.

EV "future" not doing so well. Here are "7 disasters" in the EV business. Some may consider Tesla's recent huge layoffs another for the list.

They seem to be ignoring the fact that the grid cannot handle adequately what we use right now and needs upgrades. Like they ignore traitor joes dementia. Putting the cart way before horse. Are they that stupid? Possibly.

That is just around the corner. All the worlds oil wells declining production will finally meet up with rising demand. A good stiff depression may push it forward though.

I have been doing my driveway and purchased about 10 loads of reclaimed process material. There is a facility below our street that runs a crusher and a huge loader. The owner came by yesterday to my neighbors to collect money that we both owe him. The neighbor was mentioning the noise from the facility and the owner said, "it won't be long and everything will be electric, and there won't be any noise."
So here is a guy that has a huge area where he processes many truckloads of material. He claims that electric is the future.
