EVs will be big sellers in a decade or two
The problem is with the weight and cost of the batteries. Electric motors are more reliable and have more torque than a reciprocating ICE engine. Almost no maintenance. But the stuff that's in the lab - batteries 1/3 the weight and 1/3 the cost of current options - have to hit the streets before they start selling in the 100,000s and millions. There is no doubt they will. Today's manufacturers and customers are pioneers. By definition, a small number of people. Remember, it takes courage to be a pioneer. Being an arm chair critic is all too easy.
