The below is for the Nissan Leaf. It is based on $0.12/KW/Hr. Electricity will be double that if Obama gets his wish. That will make the cost to drive an electric vehicle that needs charged for seven hours, once per each hour of driving, roughly the same as driving a VW Jetta diesel - that needs filled once per 500 miles - refueling taking about 10 minutes.
I notice that that chart does not count CO2 from fossil fuel powerplants in the emissions calculations...
