Just in terms of gross economics, is a car full of heavy metal batteries that burns less fuel any better than a car that gets a fraction of the mileage? I will never consider a car primarily powered by largely unrecyclable batteries, even if that means I'm stuck driving older and older cars. All the pious ads for the Volt/Leaf/Prius strike me as ridiculous.
