In the case of Tesla, that's never been their only intention and if they survive another 3 years or so, they'll once again *halve* the price (as they did from Roadster>Model S). That's when the fun begins, when the price becomes mainstream. And it's only a short time away.
EV naysayers are, IMO, just like the digital camera naysayers a decade ago, talking about how film cameras aren't really going away anytime soon. Then it happened--in a very short time 100% of people are using digital. And everyone stopped talking. It's undeniably the future. Talking about it being decades away is ridiculous IMO because it's already here.
