Right now this is the biggest issue electric car manufacturers have to overcome, if they intend to successfully compete with the gasoline car market. Until these things have batteries that can recharge very rapidly, and offer 300 miles per charge, they will continue to be nothing more than expensive novelties.

Who in their right mind is going to spend well into 6 digits for a car they can't even take on a cross country trip? Unless they budget themselves to 250 miles a day. It's just not practical. And with most all rechargeable batteries, be they Ni-Cad, lead acid, or Lithium, rapid charging equates to much shorter battery life. Slow charges are always better. And at present that takes too much time away from driving.

Technology will eventually overcome this. How long it will take is anyone's guess. Then there is the cost. They have to be priced competitively. Right now they're far from it. The high performance, really cool one's from Tesla are not much more than very expensive, high performance, Jay Leno toys. At least at the moment. Down the road, perhaps a lot more as the technology better develops, and becomes more affordable.

Here on Vancouver Island, I've seen as many as 5 Teslas on a one way trip from Nanaimo to Victoria.....about 300 kms round trip. I guess it depend on circumstances.

Re: How much are you paying at the pump to fill up?

Started using Gasbuddy and found D2 for 85.9/l when everywhere else is 99.9+/l. Saved over $10 on one fill...and it wasn't even out of my way....it's just that some places don't put the price of D2 on the signs.
