I have been buying EV's (last 6 cars) because they offer the performance and convenience that ICE car cannot meat. I like the environmental impact (or lack thereof) but it was not the primary decision factor. I got into EV's because of government incentives which in my mind offset going with a new, unproved (11 years ago) technology. That said, I also bought 2 ICE cars more recently as the current administration government incentivized me to - I was looking for starter cars for my kids, but the the current government made sure I am ineligible for incentives which others get on cars like the Model 3, so to me it was like an extra $7,500 cost to buy any EV which qualified for the incentive (since others get the incentives, the resale value / residual is based on that discounted price) - who am I to question the will of the people, right? If the people vote for a government that wants to incentivize me to buy ICE cars instead of EV's, I will buy ICE cars, as long as they do the job and make more fiscal sense better than the disincentivized EV. I make my car decisions based on factors at the time I am shopping. I bought the Taycan because I wanted the performance of an EV but didn't want another Tesla (I didn't like their latest offerings).

Decided on an EV after discovering to my amazement how much better electric motors are than piston engines for road cars.
The Taycan was by far the best one I found.
