Agreed. I watched my driving closely all of 2013, and after I could show that a sub 100 mile range just wasn't a problem 99% of the time I bought an EV. I've had it for three months and it's not once been a problem, or even close to a problem. I keep the gaso-powered cars (of which I have many, because I'm a gearhead) fueled up and ready to go, and maybe a couple times a month they've been called into action for something other than a track day, but mostly they just sits there. My monthly fuel bill went from $160 to $26 and I lost nothing in the deal. My house is due for a new roof in the next couple years, and I fully intend on integrating solar power into that work. I love ICEs and the cars they power, but for the daily, I am 100% satisfied with an EV.
Even if battery technology stagnates and people still need to have a backup ICE or rent an ICE for those longer trips I think that's major progress. Perhaps over time those longer trips will be handled with flight, trains, or some other form of mass transit. The idea that getting around in the future might consist of EVs and HSR makes me happy inside. Let's do it.
