I suspect that sales data will show that the majority of car buyers are more than happy to buy on a PCP or lease a vehicle.  Soon, the notion of buying outright will be an alien concept.

It already is. Round here (And its far from a wealthy part of Cumbria) when we got rid of our Polo earlier this year (sold to a young lad doing his test, written off by the new owner 4 weeks after we sold it!) it was on an 08 plate and I reckon it was probably in the bottom 5% of vehicle ages in the village, rare you see anything older than a 16 plate and I would be amazed if any of them were buying cash!

There's a ton of 2nd hand EVs on autotrader for less than 10k
By a ton, you mean 1 with a range of over a 150 miles. A 2016 Nissan leaf with 120k miles on the clock

For comparison, you can get a fully loaded 2016 diesel Focus 90,000 miles for 4,500.

Just ordered a Nissan Leaf through my works salary sacrifice thing, includes breakdown cover, servicing, tyres and insurance
230 quid a month no BiK tax.
Range anxiety not huge problem day to day as my commute is only 20 (round trip) and  supposedly real world range of 160 miles on full charge but from reading ev forums in bad conditions I may struggle to get to SN1 and back to Worcester, so if any has a long extension lead that will reach from their house to the cricket club that would be helpful

I noticed some new charging points along Broad Street and thought that would be handy for match day parking for EV owners.
