I know, you probably haven't even driven one yet, let alone seriously contemplated buying one, so the prediction may sound a bit bold, but bear with me.

And it is likely to happen much more quickly than you imagine

Recycling is one big thing that has to be overcome when it comes to the batteries, but the technology has advanced to the point where the battery will last several hundred thousand miles. And when it comes to replacement, its going to be way easier to replace the battery than it would to replace an engine in a gas car.

Myself I would buy an electric right now if they were not so expensive.

That battery is over $8,000 plus labor depending on model of car/truck.....what do you think a straight truck or tractor is going to cost to replace. And there is a very limited amount of lithium material compared to gas or propane....
