(Just musing about the future as an ICE diehard fan here...) Imagine that EV technology continues to improve and a few breakthroughs then accelerate their capability massively in a few short years. As these hurdles are crossed production will increase and general costs will come down. Suppose the electrical grid becomes a “non-issue.” Furthermore, suppose it is routine to have a cruising range of 1000 miles, and a recharge time of 10 min with a plethora of charging stations available everywhere. Correspondingly, petrol will be refined less, there will be fewer petrol stations to come by, and increased costs for delivering a product for a dwindling market. Remember, this is just a “thought experiment” about what it would take to convert you to being an EV enthusiast so for now put aside lithium issues (maybe a whole new tech gets developed) or environmental battery disposal issues, etc. What then continues to make the case for purchasing an ICE vehicle? It can only be sound, right? EV yields tremendous power. EV has fewer moving parts and thus better reliability. ICE cars won’t necessarily be more beautiful since exterior and interior designs can be whatever they decide to build.
