Electric Cars

Why all the push for electric cars? Consider this. 
The time it takes to charge an electric car can be as little as 30 minutes or more than 12 hours. This depends on the size of the battery and the speed of the charging point. Most of the models in the market have a driving range of less than 100 miles when fully charged. Charging an electric car is similar to charging a mobile phone; you top it up during the day if you need to and give it a full charge at home overnight. To do that, every parking lot and shopping center parking would need banks of charging units. A way out of this is that every car has to be its own solar panel with a continuous charge.  At this point in time electric cars are only feasible for city driving. It seems that it will take awhile for every driveway to have an electric car as the main mode of transport.
