Welll..... In this instance it's hard to argue to that there aren't advantages.
Electric cars have the same perceived advantages as early combustion driven vehicles. Clean, efficient, fast, convenient. The reality is continued gridlock, loss of public space to storage, high demand for power, road danger, destruction of land for more and ever wider roads, massive co2 emissions from production, destruction of land for mining raw materials, continued Ill health from particulate emissions from brakes and tyres.
And while petrol stations are fairly ugly, smelly things, they do provide useful emergency shops for non car users. I'm sure many of us have grabbed food at one on a ride, or a late night snack. Now we have pavements increasingly littered with charging docks and trailing cables to look forward to. Life's going to get alot harder for anyone with mobility or access issues.
