Supporter of the transition to EVs, but I don't think we're taking into account the increase in weight enough. This will also cause more road wear, so I think we'll need to start taxing/registering base on weight. Also, gas taxes can't pay for roads.
@ted maybe because EV should not be the same size as ICE? Maybe like this instead (at least for urban use): https://www.citroen.com/en/Highlight/131/ami-100-electric-mobility-accessible-to-all
@Tryphon I'm sure that works for some people. But for me, I have a son who plays hockey so I'm frequently taking players and bags of hockey gear around town.
