Anyone is welcome to read and form their own opinions, there's no new content we haven't read before and the aurthor never even defines what the "turning point" even is...PHEVs are like 1% of all vehicle sales, it'll first need to increase to 2% before it'll reach the "turning point" of 51%...We need PHEVs SUVs in order to do so...

The turning point mentioned in the article is that auto manufacturers are getting ready to offer consumers many more choices in the form of plug-in vehicles. The missing component of the equation are the dealers. If the dealers don't choose to stock and actively market the plug-in offerings then fewer consumers will end up purchasing plug-in vehicles than otherwise might do so.

It's great to see articles like this. Yes there may not be anything in there that we EV-nut jobs don't know, but likely plenty that the average NY Times reader doesn't. Especially like seeing the emphasis on torque and performance. Agree that dealers can be an issue but they'll come along eventually.

All in all a great article. Thanks for posting.

While the Tesla line of cars and Bolt may break the range anxiety issue they still aren't full on replacements for people who love to travel or have the need to drive long trips a few times each year.
