I think you will also get incentives in Quebec when you buy and there is more infrastructure available. A different story here in Saskatchewan where we pay $0.14/kWh and the infrastructure is lacking and the government is not a fan. I will be one of the very few CT owners here. Our EV ownership is less than 100 in the province and maybe less than 50.So now, everyone will buy CT in Québec as we pay around $0.06 KWH and we pay $1.20 per liter=$4.54 per US gallon Notice that is in CAD money:
F150=>15,000/18 X $4.54=$3,783.33 VS CT=>15,000X500X$0.06/1000= $450.00 différence= $3,333.33 per year just for fuel VS KWH.
I don't recall seeing arguments that its more expensive. It would be interesting to compare the total energy costs when towing. The EV's advantage of avoiding the road taxes baked into gas prices would be magnified.Can someone explain why it's more expensive to tow with BEV than ICE but cheaper to operate. How can $/hp and $/torque and $/mile be lower but $/tow capacity be higher. Somewhere else I saw some discussion that towing wouldn't be economical due to the increased time of recharging but they ignored the opportunity cost in the calculation and where that break even is.

The main issue is range between stopping to recharge, availability of super-charging locations on your desired route, and the amount of time it takes to recharge being added to your trip. An ICE doesn't have those worries.
Adding 500 miles of towing range to an ICE is cheap - for a few hundred extra $ you can buy a truck with the larger gas tank option or throw an aux. fuel tank in the back. Adding comparable range to a BEV is orders of magnitude more expensive.
