Well, the answer was yes - not surprising at all, and the reason behind that is EVs offers better "driving technology" (driving experience).

O'Connell stressed that during these early stages, there is need for policy to enable electric vehicle growth.

"Tesla's Diarmuid O'Connell discusses the future of electric vehicles. "Fundamentally, electric vehicles are going to be successful ... better driving technology and people ... find when they get behind the wheel of an electric vehicle and especially ours that it’s more fun."
