I think the real problem with the electric car is simply that our road infrastructure isn't built to handle it
, and our energy distribution system isn't built to handle it.
They have wireless chargers, for example. You could in theory build a city
where buried underneath intersections there were inductive chargers. Only the free market will ever tell us whether in time something like this is a good idea (cost effective, demand). But I'm sure there's enough smart people in the world to make electric cars work if there was enough money there
