  1. The EV resilience is largely due to government subsidies. EV’s are never going to overtake ICE vehicles. If EV’s were here to save the day, then auto manufactures would not be questioning their viability and switching to Hybrid’s or shutting down they EV business.

    EV’s also cost more to buy and depreciate at an alarming rate because of the repair costs. People are already struggling to make ends meet and purchasing an EV is out of reach for many. Because of the EV’s vehicle weight due in part to the batter modules, they tend to go thru tires at a much higher rate.
