When you're talking about EVs to someone that isn't familiar with them, what's the one myth that you keep having to debunk to them?

The one that I've gotten the most about from friends and family is about batteries and how quickly the battery degrades. They compare it to a phone's battery and I have to keep telling them that while they have similar components, they work in completely different ways. I try to tell them about EVs usually charge up to 80% and damage occurs when you repeatedly charge to 100% and/or leave the battery with 0% charge for a long period of time.

Apparently EVs aren't actually greener overall but it turns out that they are over the long-term.

"Gas engines are getting so efficient you don't need to switch to electric"...which may be true but ignores the skyrocketing sales of large trucks and SUVs.
