For those few that the electric car is perfect for, then does the cheaper "fuel" outweigh the high purchase costs? Usually not.

As far as the Superchargers from Tesla, I think I heard that only the newest, and top of the line (most expensive) cars are compatible with the free Superchargers. I think some of the others can be converted, maybe for a hefty price.
Other than the higher purchase price and limited range, the difference in charging methods and charging times are maybe the next biggest obstacle to pure electrics being good for the "majority".

Thanks for taking the time to check what I am a huge fan of, the leaf or any other electric. Sad you maybe right, the electric car is too expensive for the majority, I have to except that I guess.
What I really have a problem excepting, the fact we all could have the most expensive electric car on the market with a small portion of the current deficit. Instead of us all getting free electric cars to drive with our trillions spent by the system, there is less of us now from the wars and the trillions we owe got maybe one percent of us very very very rich, how is this even a concept much less our reality?
I am a fan of anything that is for the majority's good, but unfortunately the system that owns us only cares about the few very rich, it is why we didn't have this thread at least twenty years ago, back when Bush stopped CA from becoming a zero emissions state by taking the states rights away to set emission standards. President Obama gave the rights to set emissions standards back to the states, but twenty years too late, too late to stop the damage done by oil in the mean time, maybe too late to stop the extreme weather we are now in.
I always say better late than never, but that may not apply anymore, since the majority puts all inconveniences ahead of doing what is right, like driving electric if you could but don't because you want a big O gas guzzler that can drive 24 hours a day, even though most drive less than an hour a day, but just in case you want to drive all day, can't have electric and a clean world for our children, crazy our meme reality.
