If it was 1/2 the price, I wouldn't care. The car is actually not very expensive to build. It's the batteries that are the majority of the cost.
I'd add to that, as I know a few folks that have them and I think there's a view that they have something unique. I think a lot of the owners aren't care people but they love the tech aspect, like the big iPad in the dash. It's also a status symbol for many of them.
