I think when the new supply drys up and gas goes over $3.50 a gallon and everyone gets caught with their pants down driving something that get 15mpg all of a sudden EVs will get expensive again.

But some things that won't change:
The lack of charging stations.
People who rent and can't install a charging station.
The range limit.

They still remain a bit of a toy for us rich land owners who can run a 30 to 50 amp 240v circuit to where they park.
I have already ran a 50 amp welder circuit to the garage for a welder. It could also power a vehicle charger.
