At an EPA equivalent 99 mpg the electric cars will be more expensive than gas/diesel once the EPA is finished jacking up electricity costs with ever more burdensome regulations. Expect electricity to double in the next five years with this EPA.
The problem with electric cars is the weight and expense of the battery and the absence of fast acceleration. Unless it is solved, their future is rather limited.
And the basis for that 99 MPG figure is...
...complete fiction, no?
And don’t forget to add in the cost of disposing of old batteries. I am sure the “re-cycling fees” will be substantial.
