Maybe, but most people looking at buying an EV aren't really tree huggers. There certainly are some, but there are tree hugger BMW M5 owners too.

The driving experience of an EV is preferred by many that have driven them. Plus a lot of people don't want to continue to send their money overseas, some of which ends up in the hands of radical regimes that hate the West.
People like the idea of fueling their car with energy they capture from the sun on their roof and others just hate buying gas. There are a lot of reasons to want to drive electric, tree hugging included I guess.
