For me it's just price. I don't mind waiting another year or two. If I can get a 2LT AWD for 50K CAD (36K USD), then I'll take that (that means 44K CAD after taxes and Quebec rebate).

If that's not an option, I'll probably go with a CX-5\Outlander\RVR...etc. the CX-5 is AWD standard, power liftgate, and actually has Android Auto and Apple Carplay... So that's what I'm leaning towards as plan B. I don't "have to have" an EV, I'm no fanboy of anything, not brands, and not a propulsion system. I'm going with what will be the best deal for my driving habits. I keep my cars for a loooooong time (10+ years), so battery failure is a slight worry for me, but degradation isn't (I drive 3-4Kkm a year... 2-3K miles)
If you keep your vehicles for long times, and considering a new ICE vehicle, you should also consider the long term availability and cost of gasoline. Setting aside the climate aspects, Mother Earth is not making more fossil fuel and we continue to deplete the remaining reserves at a record pace. EVs and renewable electric energy sources may be a more reliable long-term option.

And 5-10 years from now, do you think CP/AA will still be a factor? Technology rapidly shift-shapes. The popularity of any hardware or software system follows a bell curve, with steep shoulders. If 80% of all new vehicles now include CP/AA in 2023, could CP/AA be right at their bell’s’ peak? Forward thinking OEMs likely see that curve and are planning accordingly.
