You cant rely really on startups to get you there I’d think so, as in general it’s easier to start a small company when you target a high premium market.
For now, pretty much all automakers with the exception of VW’s ID3 and Hyundai have proven to not know how to build a decent cheapish EV.
Remember range will be directly related to price, shape and size. Cheap car means using a small battery and if you want decent range it will be small, and aerodynamics dont lead to practical cars.
(Edit: with the ID3 im thinking EU, and with that im not really considering the Renault Group and Pegeout Group cars.
Also there you get the Honda E and the tini VW eUP)
