You know what I'm getting at...one can toss the physical shifter to the left and row throw gears yourself. Much more engaging than not being able to change your gears at all in an EV.

Soccer moms still want to take their families on road trips. Even with Tesla's extensive supercharger network, it is still a headache for people to travel and stop every several hours. It's exponentially more inconvenient to charge non-Tesla EVs.
