Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

No gasoline. This I understand

No engine or transmission maintenance. This I understand

Electricity is cheaper than gasoline. This I understand.

But the car needs to be charged at the same frequency (or nearly so) that an ICE car needs to be refueled.

The Supercharger recharge time is 30 minutes rather than under 5 minutes for a tank of fuel.

Superchargers in my area are 50 miles apart (I checked), meaning most charging will need to be done at a much slower rate in an owner's garage at night.

Charging along the highway conveniently is fully dependent upon finding an empty supercharger along your route.

Even with all that, I am certain almost all of us will be driving electric cars someday, for some type of use.
