Electric cars make sense
Electric cars would be so popular once they can give us the same flexibility as gas vehicles.
Much less can go wrong under the hood, they don’t leave noxious gasses, make less noise and the only thing that stops this choice is the practicality posed by the range limits imposed by the distance a full charge allows. Most new electric vehicles are more expensive than non-electric vehicles, and few that offer the space needs of an SUV, presently the most popular model of personal vehicle.
Once the models offered are more in line with the what people want, the charging stations are located with the same flexibility you get when finding a gas station and the technology improves enough so charge does not take all day, we will see them everywhere.
Electric cars are really nice, the only things you need to maintain are the tires and the battery, not much else can go wrong. They are quiet, make no foul smells, and make you, the driver, feel that your decision to get in your car and go somewhere is not in the process of destroying the planet.
To those more technically aware, the electricity that is generated for these charging station should be generated in such a way that is also eco-friendly. Government needs to be part of this process but the private sector will come on board because money will be made.
Once these practical issues are resolved electric vehicles will be everywhere.
