Range is still an issue, even on the higher-end models and, with the almost singular exception of Tesla, fugly as hell. However, it's good to see they are finally approaching price parity.
range is constantly increasing, they're up to hundreds of miles on a charge and who knows where they'll be in a few years ... when will 1,000 mile range be standard?

If my car dies, I would have to get another one on the cheap while I waited for the EV to get made. If it was under 6 months, I would need to keep our dead vehicle fully insured while I waited for the EV, or I wouldn’t be entitled to all of the rebates.
a huge wave is on the way from every automaker in the next few years, so that it won't be a problem much longer (assuming covid hasn't messed with the schedule)
volkswagen alone has, what, six models on the way?
methinks supply problems will soon be history
