It is work in progress.
Batteries will get cheaper, lighter, better, charge faster, have more range over time. That by itself will make EV's more attractive. But also, the bigger the market the finer mazed the charging structure will be.
We've seen that happen over here. Holland has a high % of EV's and plugin hybrids, and the charging structure has grown with it. Finding a charger close by where you need it is easy.

Yeah, there may be people who abuse the system. But they will find themselves making involuntary donations to the nations largest charity.
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.17 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Investors woes:
"In hindsight, I should have placed a bet on the horse that won the race"
"In hindsight, I should have bet more on that horse"
