Physics vs. Electric Cars

Why Gas Engines Are Far From Dead - Biggest EV Problems

Electric car technology is cool and always improving, and has good applications in some situations, but before electric cars can be considered a true scalable solution for the mass market, several practical engineering and physical world issues remain to be resolved. 

And he didn’t even get into the electricity generation part, which introduces other issues with cost and supply. 

New technology can replace old technology of course — but it has to be better in some major way, rather than more expensive, less energy dense, and less practical.
