It's true that in the coming years, the EV will be asked to stand on it's own. It's sink or swim time as I doubt there will be a lot of government money, or incentives coming for the next few years and frankly, it's probably time for that to happen. The good news is, the Chevy Bolt is here now, the Tesla Model 3 will be here by year's end and not long after that, likely a gen 2 LEAF. Regardless of what happens next, the top of the line, luxury EV, the Tesla S and X, the Lucid Air maybe, the Jaguar iPace and more are still going to push the technology. People expect it now.
There's no doubt about it, the mass consumer EV as the norm is still a dream and that dream is fragile, but it's roots are now in the American consciousness and there is no going back. The more Bolts, Volts, M3s, LEAFs, etc people get their hands on, the less people like Trump can do about it.
