Can EV growth bring about peak oil before 2030?

Is this really believable? Ratings agency Fitch said today in one of its scenarios that public preference for EVs, along with government policies that favor EVs, could bring about peak oil demand before 2030. That seems like not very far away. Infrastructure for EVs seems to be lacking, for one.

What are the other barriers to mass EV adoption?

I believe EV adoption barriers can be broadly categorized into internal and external barriers, where Internal factors cover the vehicle itself with the type of battery used, Full charge time, driving range on full charge, initial investment of the EV (purchase price) and external factors which covers the associated policies and adoption of these policies, prices of other fuels (gasoline & Diesel), number of charging stations, consumer preferences etc.
