So you're saying there are other, possibly more determinative, reasons?

And haven't all manufacturers other than Tesla and Arcimoto outlived their usefulness?

A hybrid paired with an EV should work pretty well for many couples.

It worked well for my wife and I. (Before she switched to a bicycle)

Six to seven hour drive.

Five up.

Luggage and supplies for four days' stay (anything more is useless. You can wash clothes for reuse).

Need to move anything bigger, and you can rent something.

No sense in buying capacity you aren't going to use 99.9% of the time. Hell, most people drive alone 99.9% of the time.

Since the widespread introduction of these things around two or three years ago, sales have taken off like wildfire. Cheap to buy, cheap to run, take up very little road space, high utility....

I wouldn't disconsider to buy one if it ever gets available in Brazil once again, but I'd be inclined to swap its engine for a 250cc Yamaha and to make a full enclosure.
