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) .
