EVs are still a specialty thing that just very recently pushed over into mainstream. That is why there is so much discussion. I am very interested in an EV and can say that it's possible my next car (maybe getting one this fall) I will run for 5 years and it may be the last ICE DD i have. I almost bought a new construction house last fall and i made sure to spec the power line for an EV for the garage - i do believe its the future. As an enthusiast ill always like ICE cars and maybe that means my toy is a cool ICE, but DD? Id happily swap for an e-car particularly when most normal cars have anemic powertrains.
I look at EVs as digital watches and ICE as fine Swiss movement. The tech gets better, the batteries get cheaper. With serious R&D now in the e-world, better stuff will be coming. With capacitor/battery you can in theory build batteries that can do it all. You can charge at night, or at work, and never stop for "gas." Plus, it will allow RWD to make a comeback for the enthusiast - no need for a FWD setup with electric motors and batteries - or even if they are fwd, they will not have the weight imbalance of an engine and tranny over the front wheels.
Also keep in mind e-cars are just part of the e-world transformation. Maybe in 10 years we will see lots of solar panels, lots of home batteries, lots of change in energy systems. It is all very exciting, and i love the idea of anything that adds to our energy independence.
