No one will be forced to buy an EV. ICE and ICE/Electric Hybrids will be with us for a long time. Gas is not going away for those that can afford to pay for it. I’m holding out for a hydrogen powered vehicle. Major vehicle manufactures are already producing them. 90 seconds to refill a hydrogen powered vehicle. Anywhere from 30 to ninety minutes to recharge an EV. To cross my island in the winter with the heater and headlights on, I’d have to stop and recharge at least three times. About a 1000 kilometre drive.If way past 60 you will make it without EV's, especially in the DR.
And this is just for short 500 mile trips.
US and CAN cover large distances for road trips.
Maybe they will try to shame us for flying and driving??

We will have one of the largest commercial hydrogen production facilities in Canada about 10 minutes drive from my house. Powered by 216 windmills which will also provide a power surplus to be fed into our power grid. Most of the hydrogen will be shipped to Germany to replace oil and natural gas for their energy generation. The remainder will be distributed to vehicle gas stations throughout the island. Two other smaller scale hydrogen facilities are also planned and other large ones are planned in other parts of Atlantic Canada.
Hydrogen is an easy element to extract and is everywhere. No mining required unlike lithium and rare earth elements for EV battery’s. A better approach to minimize gasoline and diesel powered vehicles, instead of the mad rush to EV’s which won’t stop the coming 3 to 5 degree rise in our temperature.
