Re: Does EV adoption just encourage 2-car families?

around this time of year lots and lots of people are driving multi-hundred mile journeys in heavily laden vehicles

Godo point. I don't know what current models are like, but I recall the original Toyota Pious* basically had no boot left after the batteries were stuffed in. I can see that pure EV models don't need the fuel tank and engine, but do they have similar load spaces to "roughly equivalent" ICE vehicles ?

* Spelt that way because it seems that seemed to be the attitude of many that bought them - PR statements.
