    Some people may continue to drive cheaper less powerful fuel efficient gas car like Mitsubishi Mirage which are cheaper to buy than most average cars and use less fuel.

    The money savings in car insurance, payments, and fuel savings can help save enough money to buy a more expensive electric car like a Tesla Model 3 after many years of saving money by driving a cheap gas car, saving money on other expenses like food, and not spending their money on stuff like expensive clothing.

    Some electric cars are less powerful, and heavy, so some gas cars buyers may buy a less powerful gas car after seeing that less powerful electric cars which weigh more can be fast enough for driving around town. Most cheap gas cars don't have a very powerful engine, but they may weigh less than an electric car with a large heavy battery and electric motor.

    Well, electric cars are great but they are not popular enough.

    So, many people would try to get some cheaper gas cars, to save money. That's what I believe anyway.

    I agree cheaper gas cars would be a good choice for people with less money. Some workers also drive a lot because of their jobs, so an electric car may not be a good choice because of long recharge times compared to pumping gas into a gas car which takes a few minutes to fill up the tank. Plus, if there is a power outage at the electric car charging station or the charger broke, electric car users can't charge their car with an empty battery, so they would not have enough power to get to work until the power outage is gone, or the charger got fixed.

    The electric car charger and charging cable, and home installation for the charger can be expensive.

    Unfortunately, I feel electricity maybe more expensive in the future because it cost a lot of money to run an electricity company which hire many workers, and maintain and repair a lot of electric wires.
