Is the tipping point in view?

We have just returned from our annual holiday to Lake Guarda in Northern Italy, a trip of about 2500 miles including driving whilst there. We always go in our Transporter as being a family of Celiacs we bring home a years supply of pasta etc so need a the space.

In the 7 years we have driven, we have never seen an EV, not one! until this year.
In England both ends of the trip where too dark so don't know what we passed.
In France, Switzerland and Italy however we spotted…….
1 Zoe
1 Tesla Roadster
2 Amperas
5 Model S's
and 11 Outlanders.

IMO Tesla and Mitsubishi seem to have got the pricing and products that we want. When will others follow suit and give us cars that compete with an ICE on a like for like basis?
If the Outlander in particular continues to sell as it has in the last few months I think that the mistic tipping point might actually be in sight:)

My friends say they will never have one Because it dose not have 600 miles of range, I have done 10k in zoe and people still ask me at work if I can drive it around the golf course. Things are picking up but most of people still don't know anything about EV's ,most think of the G-wiz with 30 miles of range, they are very shocked when they see my car I must say. I hope the model e dose not come out at 35k as I will not be able to afford it.
