Anti electric vehicle propagandist like to compare the Tesla Model S to tiny petrol subcompacts with tiny highly efficient engines.

Compare big fast electric cars to big fast petrol cars and small slow electric cars to small slow diesel cars and electric vehicles come up on top on all metrics save range and refueling time.

Range is increasing every couple of years for electrics, a big boost in charging times is a year or two away, and you can always charge overnight if you have a dedicated parking space.
