The interesting thing happening as well is the electric trucks that are being advertised by Tesla & Rivian. Priced from 35-80k it will be interesting to see how the trucks stand up over time and the demand for them. I would love to own one but at the current price point it’s unrealistic; yet like you said in 6 years that may change.

This is going to be one of the big questions going into the ’20s and I for one can’t wait to see how it plays out. One thing holding some back from making the switch is manufacturers. I want to go EV, and the wife wants a minivan for a growing family. Well, there aren’t any viable electric minivans, so we’re stuck at a crossroads. For now, we’re waiting as we don’t want to spend money on a gas vehicle that’s going to be obsolete in less than 10 years (we tend to keep vehicles more than 15 years, we still have a ’96 Dodge).
