RE: Oil Prices
My 2 cents on EV.

What I like about it.
It does make a more pleasant drive. Quiet, good pick up.
Less part count, less moving parts.(Electric motor Vs Combustion engine)
Instant start up. Less maintenance needed on drive-train.

What I dont like about it.
Charging takes a long time.
Shorter range.(Diesel cars can go beyond 1000km/tank)
Lifetime of the battery is short. Made worse by the hot and humid climate(then again there are maintenance issues on combustion engine as well, belts, spark plug etc) .

RE: Oil Prices
I used to write off ev. As well due to the limited range issue and charging issue.

However supercharging station is getting more common and also battery cost falling fast, nowadays sgd2000+ can get local battery replacement for those hybrid car batteries, used to be 8k++.

Surely soon we will have plug and play battery, can just switch out battery cells for new one, instant recharge. Like last time smartphone can only use one day need to recharge but now people make external battery packs for recharging on the go. Very possible for this to be done for ev.

And yes for guys main thing is pickup and racing at the traffic light which ev. Like Tesla is definitely quite superior.

But not just ev, hybrids are also becoming very popular and definitely petrol demand will suffer.
