@Dr Herbie: too bad the majority will charge during the day time, when people have had their commute. You don't want to run the risk of a dlat battery now do you? That's an eight hour wait instead of a 15 minute walk.
And as the range increases and the charge time decreases, the power demand will increase by the product of the two. And people who don't own cars and people who have little money will be the victims of this latest fad.
Electric cars and green energy are projects for the elite to show off that they care for the planet more then for their fellow man.
