The attraction to me of the electrics is nearly zero drivetrain maintenance needed and much less to go wrong. A whole host of systems that will need maintenance and repair is eliminated.
I believe the environmental benefits of electrics are very much over-hyped, and it's not something I particularly care about anyway. My metrics are functionality and value for dollar.
If an electric was comparable in price to a conventional car and provided the same functionality it's something I'd certainly consider, but from what I can see the battery technology is not quite there yet. (What we really need is something like Mr. Fusion or maybe Heinlein's deKalb receptors.)
