We're showing our age here I think. Time to face the truth that electric is the future and the future is here. Much of what you wrote isn't really accurate anymore. There are plenty of electric vehicle options that are on par with gas vehicles in terms of cost to own. Range limitations simply are not an issue. People use cars to commute to work and run errands, etc for 99% of a vehicle use. No one drives cross country anymore. A car with a couple hundred mile range (which is on the low side now) is more than capable for almost all.Just my opinion, but an electric car's battery range is too limited, it takes too long to recharge, they are too expensive, and electrics are just as bad, or even slightly worse for the environment than their gasoline counterparts.
Even when a standard design for charging emerges, it seems to me that the estimated cost of $540 per vehicle for the infrastructure is way low, and doesn’t consider the needed increase in capacity to the power grid and generating plants.
Other than that they're wonderful.
