I had an electric garden tractor in 1973 by the way. Way better than gasoline fueled yard equipment even made today. It cost twice as much as a gas tractor of the day. Even in the gas-crisis of the early 1970's it didn't sell well because of the price. There were no Government market tax credit offsets to try and create market change.
Correct. The notion that fear is why people don't switch to EVs is laughable. The people that do switch more than likely have out of fear. They fear the wealth redistribution hoax of climate change. Al Gore said I'd be underwater 10 years ago. He got everyone feeling guilty so they would pay carbon credits to compensate for their carbon footprint. Those carbon credits mostly went straight into his bank account making him a billionaire. That's where the real fear mongering is.
