The VW ID.3 seems like the first mass market attempt although they are not yet fully committed considering it is a separate "experimental" brand with a weirdo name and not even replacing the mainstream Golf and Polo.

After dieselgate they probably consider this good PR and some contrite expense measure.

Until the electric car gets instant charging instead of the 2+ hours charging, I will continue filling the tank of my car in less than 5 minutes.

It will happen probably. But even now it's not that bad. In 30 mins you can get 100s of km.

And also it's a different paradigm, since most people just charge it overnight at home. So except when going on a long trip, you don't have to visit a "gas station".
