Electric vehicles for normal use are uneconomical. Two main reasons prevent their being a replacement for cars and trucks.
All electric batteries, unreliable in the cold, at best, only hold one
thirtieth of the energy that an equal weight of gasoline contains.
And as any high school student of physics knows there is an immutable law in dynamics, that energy consumption increases by the 'square' of the increase in speed. Invalid chairs and golf carts are economic and useful, but anything beyond that is completely uneconomic as the city of Nanaimo will soon find out.
