    I wonder which automakers they included in their study. Was it only the majors or did they include companies like Tesla, BYD, or even Zap?

    The obvious truth is a pure EV is a heck of a lot easier to develop than an EREV. So if they're including companies that have no ICE technology to leverage, this result isn't a surprise at all.

    Two different studies.

    .

    Since they don't use the term "Major" to describe manufactures, I would think that small companies who need chargers would be included.
