I relate the ev situation to a Cowboy in the 1890s shooting his horse after hearing of a horseless cariage. The electric grid will implode if we all get electric vehicles. Assuming Human nature,everyone will come home and plug in their vcars,exploding tranformers.Personally I think hybrids make a lot of sense. The battery pack is smaller and lighter. I think Mazda is on to something with using the rotary engine to charge the batteries like a diesel locomotive. One day battery tech will get there, but I do not think that day is here yet.
