Some thoughts to consider about electric cars:
1. Electric cars will never replace gasoline cars until they are as powerful, efficient and cost-effective as gasoline cars. The media has been saying for nearly 100 yrs that they will be - hasn't happened yet.
2. The infrastructure to support the gasoline car has been in place for over 100 yrs, and cannot be dismantled in a day. Likewise, the infrastructure to support electric cars will not spring up overnight.
3. Using electric cars will place an even greater burden on our electricity-generating capacity. Where will all this extra power come from? Increasing the number of electric cars on the road while shutting down power plants is not exactly a smart thing to do.
