The "love affair" with cars is actually a generation thing.

Today's youth have much less interest with car ownership.

The Main Stream Media in this country, has fallen to the integrity of the national enquirer. NYT is nothing but a propaganda machine.
Obama's objective was to destroy the western world. His Regulations. His everything. Was a big false act up front. When behind you, he was destroying you, slowly. His Regulations were ludicrous.
Trump just wants to give the common man breathing room. Green is good. But let it take over with demand. Not by abruptly eliminating everything else.

Toilet paper contributes more to civilization than the Washington Post, too. The CIA paid the WP $600m. What's that cozy relationship tell you?

Can't remember the forum and the context, could've been Reddit, but someone said they knew someone that had worked at the National Enquirer. That source told them that the NE triple checks ALL details BEFORE publishing. The NE editors learned to do that after being sued in their earlier days. When's the last time you heard about the NE being sued? In other words, the National Enquirer really is a very trustworthy source of information, which none of the main stream media can say for themselves.

Today an exploding hover board killed a child. Do you really want 50 pounds of that a foot from your arse.

Told the wife maybe we should NOT leave any device with lithium ion batteries hooked to a charger overnight, could wake up to a house fire, like the gal who went to sleep on the plane and woke up with her head on fire.

I know the Insight uses NIMH tech ancient and more stable, but Honda wants all those 1 gen Insights gone and they make the parts. That's a real uphill battle, once you take the reliability of replacement parts out of the repair and maintenance equation the techniques used to really fix broken cars, become so difficult it becomes a real crap shoot when you can not replace something and continue on to what else it takes to finish the job.
The little girl died in the fire started by the charging hoverboard, and it was likely one that was under the recall.

Several Teslas have caught fire when road debris pierced the battery pack. In all cases, the car warned the driver to pull over, and everyone got out without injury. From photos, it doesn't even appear the fire entered the passenger cabin. The deaths that did occur in a Tesla involve high speed, alcohol, and/or stupidity.

Traditional cars catching or starting fires is so common that it no longer rises to the level of national news like plug ins doing do.

There are merits to keeping Li-ion devices unplugged while sleeping. There are also merits for not storing gasoline anywhere inside your house.

Are they not interested, or can they not afford a car with their student debt?

I'm or sure once in a living situation where they can't depend on family, friends, and public transit, they will be interested in having a car. Or they will have to use the likes of Uber, who will need driverless cars, because there won't be enough drivers out there.
