    Quoted from jawjaw:

    I just don't see the future for electric cars or Tesla for that matter. It's tough for any auto manufacturer to compete especially niche ones. I like the high tech stuff but a car needs to be practical and multi purpose. I just don't ever see the average busy family buying eletric. Not only are they expensive but they have limitations. It would be a nightmare to run out of charge in middle of a hot day with a car full of little kids. Gas cars now days simply work, take few minutes to fill tank, and are reliable for 200,000 miles. I see a lot of Tesla cars on the road so they must work for some but nobody I know.

    In 10 to 15 years electirc cars will be appreciably less expensive to produce and run than internal combusion engine cars (fewer components, easier to assemble), they are already generally more reliable (see previous, less stuff to go wrong) and batteries and charging infrastructure is improving by leaps and bounds, much faster than say internal combusion engine tech is currently evolving.

    A lot of the these points are currently true in many comparisons, it will just get more and more lopsided in favor of electirc vehicles as time goes on.

    If you think everybody will be rolling around in massive gas guzzlers in 2040, you would be as correct as the people in 1978 thinking digital pinball games would never supplant EM`s.

    There, finally a pinball comparison in a cargument
