For EV's to be "the answer", a lot depends on what question you ask.
I wouldn't bet against Compressed Natural Gas, or a fuel cell vehicle
(with a natural gas "reformer" in the trunk) making the current crop of
EV's look like Edsels.
The whole story hasn't been written yet on the current crop.. and like
most first generation things, some survive (the Mazda RX-7 and it's rotary
engine) and some (The Chrysler Turbine car with it's "flex fuel" engine!)
It's nice to tout your paticular choice (It must be good, you chose it!) for
the solution to some problem, but history is littered with a litany of
"the next great thing".
Time will tell.
