No, but for big chunks of the West it is. According to the EU there are
463 cars per thousand in Europe

Husband and wife often have a car each. Still doesn't really help.

I proved my point,in the EU and North America families have two cars.
Explain how that "doesn't really help" in the context of having both an
ice and a EV.

   No you didn't "prove" anything of the sort, but you did establish
something about norms.


Because the American family is probably not a 1-job/1-wage family, and not
even necessarily a nuclear family.  Families can be complex things that defy
concepts like "norms".  The strategy of owning an  EV car for commuting &
local use and a separate ICE car for occasional use & trips may actually fit
amazingly few real-life situations.  One size does not fit all!
