But he doesn't want to hear that.
The public will simply not buy 'inflexible' cars unless they're wealthy enough
to have one dedicated as a 'shopping trolley'.

They will when the price drops and the range improves. Right now in my
area electric scooter ($00.00- $500.00) sales have taken off.

And watch that come to a SCREACHING stop when enforcement catches up
with legislation. Virtually NONE of the "electric scooters" sold in
Ontario currently complies with the letter of the law. They all
actually fall into the Moped (or limited speed motorcycle) class, not
the electric assisted bycycle class.
I hope when the trial period is over the "electric assist bicycle"
class doesn't end up being rolled into the moped class with
registration and insurance as well as MC driver's licence
requirements because someone cheated.
I drive an "electric assist bicycle" that is actually possible to ride
across town on pedal power. I have just built a trailer that carries
extra-range batteries for when I neeed to go more than 22Km round

No but the technology is the same, and bringing battery costs down due
