The life style with Electric Vehicle

Electric vehicle seems like a joke, isn't it? However if we change the viewpoint to reconsider its usage, and maybe there will be something different.

The Discovery channel reported a story. A New Yorker lived in the outer region of the city. He drove his electric vehicle to the location of his downtown office. During working, the battery of vehicle was recharged. In the evening, the New Yorker came back to his warm house with the full-recharged vehicle.
People often met the problem why they choose to buy electric vehicle. Because the electric vehicles seems have more drawbacks after compared with those cars powered by internal combustion engines and the petroleum. The torque force of the former car is smaller, the driving distance is shorter, and the time spent on recharging the battery is so long (about 4 to 6 hours).

The electric vehicle cannot afford the distance across several cities or the journey to other tourist spots. But most time we often stay in one city, and the distance will not exceed the distance limit of electric vehicle. During rush hour, who can able to seperate the difference of these two kind cars? (The bicycle is always the winner.) In a traffic jam, the waste gas came from a car powered by internal combustion engine (i.c.e) is awful. [1]
In some condition, the eco electric vehicle is not real eco if the batteries were not handled well. The battery-quick-recharged station is a killer of these batteries. The waste of short-lifetime batteries and eco-electric-vehicles will become a mock of our environment.
There are many choices need to select in our living. A method with many advantages did not mean it could handle all conditions well. In some condition, another method with few advantages will be a better choice. I think another method is not the best choice but a proper choice.

[1]If a car did not maintain well, the car driving in slow velocity will emit more waste gas and spent more petroleum.
