We are a one car family, That car has to do around town, road trips Summer and Winter. I live in Western NY State. Do you know what winter temps do to electric car range? Suppose a snowstorm closes the Thruway while I am on it and we are stuck overnight or longer. we would have a choice of freezing to death or not being able to move when the road is cleared. The State Police can’t bring us a 5 gallon can of electricity.
As far as getting a huge conversion of cas to electric, where are we going to get the addotional electricity from and how are we going to distribute it? Our electric grid ia aging , overstressed and failures are increasing and yet we have no plans to spend the TRILLIONS of dollars to replace it, nor do we have the plant capacity to produce it. Solar and wind power can produce some of the electricity but don’t reduce needed plant capacity because there are times the wind doesn’t blow, or blows too hard and solar has similar problems. Cheektowaga , a town near Buffalo had to rip out their new solar street lights because the whole area went dark when we went about a month without sunlight a few years ago.
Hybrid maybe, electric never.
