One industry that REALLY needs EV' is the Taxi industry. Esp. New York, but all cities really. My local politician says Taxis in Toronto are getting KILLED by gas costs. A model S or X with double benches facing each other seating 6 would be amazing. At present, Toronto taxis can only take 4 people in a taxi. Giving a small number to Taxi companies, even without special seating would easily convince our taxi fleets to start the transition or EVs. Another industry that could pay for the vehicle quickly are Limos, most of which are sedans. If they had some to try , im sure both these industries would go electric. They drive enough miles to make the economics work. There is a cool guy in OSLO that runs his Model S as a delivery/shipping service and really makes use of the superchargers and the large internal volume available for "stuff". He has a channel on youtube, "Bjørn's Tesla Model S".
