Electric cars have already passed the stage when young and wealthy innovators were ready to cash out for the ultra-expensive supercars, then early adopters were buying short range and questionably looking Nissan Leafs and Renault Zoes, but finally we are at the point when the majority of buyers are starting to pay attention. 2021 will be the year when the world’s favorite body style will get electrified and EV crossover SUVs will set on a path of establishing their domination in the business.
