I wonder how many people are in the same position as me: need a new car, really really want an EV, but keep being told that a million great new EVs are just over the horizon, so keep waiting. Enough to affect the market?  https://www.eenews.net/greenwire/2019/06/24/stories/1060650517 

Ha, turns out there's a name for this -- the "Osborne Effect." (h/t @SorenHave)  https://cleantechnica.com/2019/02/25/the-osborne-effect-on-the-auto-industry/ 

I appreciate all the EV tips, but my wife and I have our eye on a Hyundai Kona EV. We're just haunted by the fear that a year later a dozen newer/cheaper/better models will be available.  https://www.hyundaiusa.com/kona-electric/index.aspx
