Electric cars and plug-in hybrids are a fail | ZDNet

I like the idea of electric cars. Heck, I’ve driven them, and downright enjoyed doing so. The inner geek within me yearns for a car that makes no noise other than a suppressed electric whine, and that glides down the highway like something out of a futuristic sci-fi movie or Knight Rider.So let’s just get this out of the way: I do not hate electric cars. In fact I think they are awesomely cool, and are an incredible technical achievement.That being said, at this stage of their technical development, and given other issues related to the production of electricity in this and in many other countries, I don’t think they are even close to being ready for prime time.
