    When you have to take 20 minutes to explain how temperature, rain, winter, head winds etc affects the rated range of EVs most people tune out and find it too complicated. I even feel stupid for having to explain every nuance and how you'll never actually get the 300 rated miles anyway

    Car purchases are also down right now.  Likely, production will drop, to match demand.  Then as we reopen businesses demand will spike, and so will the prices.

    Just read that the US oil use is down 20M barrels a day.  Oklahoma & Kentucky are hitting $1/gal.   This certainly won't help EV adoption.

    I heard today that 1 out of 9 barrels of the world's oil production is consumed by the cars of our country.  We are the enemy.  

    We drive TESLAS.  How serious are we about spreading the word...being the "bore" at the party or other get together  expounding the critical importance for everyone to drive an electric car?  Our grandchildrens' lives depend on it.  The planet will survive... I am sure it will be greatly relieved when we all knock ourselves off in the future. 

    Be a bore... talk it up...give test rides.  You can't do enough to help the USA redeem itself from its fatal attraction to oil. 

    This is us not them.

    - World production 80,622,000 barrels
    01  United States[6] 15,043,000
    02  Saudi Arabia (OPEC) 12,000,000
    03  Russia 10,800,000

     Oil consumption by country:  Again this is us not them.

    Rank Country/Region Oil consumption (bbl/day)
    1 United States 20,000,000
    - European Union 15,000,000
    2 China 13,500,000
