Is it too early to buy an EV or better to wait until prices come down?

Is it too early to buy an EV? Or better to wait a while for prices (hopefully) to come down and any initial problems to be ironed out?

You could buy something like a Renault Zoe, which has been around long enough for problems to be ironed out. Renault offers a battery rental service, too - which'll save you expensive bills if the batteries develop issues.
