As they drop plans for electrification of their fleets (too expensive, no one wants them, don't need them to meet the new lax CAFE standards), demand for EVs will be satisfied by Tesla, China and Germany. Sure, the current demand is a small percentage of the overall automotive market in this country, but so was the demand for high-mileage cars in the '70s until OPEC spanked us.

Coal and gas lovers may slow the grow a bit, but as BlueStar stated, Tesla, Germany and China will take the market share that is there and growing. When, not if, gas prices go nuts again, you are going to see a lot of new believers switching religions.
