Policies Pushing Electric Vehicles Show Why Few People Want One - WSJ Opinion

We constantly hear that electric cars are the future—cleaner, cheaper and better. But if they’re so good, why does California need to ban gasoline-powered cars? Why does the world spend $30 billion a year subsidizing electric ones?

The subsidies, predictably, cover the increased cost, almost to the penny, versus the gas powered model. Look at the pricing on the Chrysler Pacifica vs the Pacifica Plug-in Hybrid.

EV and renewable energy must become dominant the same way that all other technologies have: provide a better product and a better experience at a better price.
