An electric car in theory is a good idea, except for some of the drawbacks listed by others here. One point that I haven’t seen is: The battery in the electric car is only good for about 5 years (depending on the area of the country) the replacement cost today about $5000.00. They are not totally recyclable, and that portion is highly eco unfriendly. Today the GM product is subsidized by the government to the tune of $20,000 per unit. Theory is good being practical sucks.
