Well, if you can't afford a Tesla, autonomy is limited to 250km, or less, depending on the model. So if you need to make long travels, it's not an option. It can be excellent as a second car, but for the first one, if your family is a little spread out, currently, oil-drinking cars are better.

Also don't forget the lifecycle costs of electric cars, that lithium in those batteries carries quite a high Carbon Cost. No one ever really considers the carbon cost of making the car in all of these statistics you get when you buy a car.

I think we should all have plane cars, and screw emissions.  Can you imagine a VW diesel plane car? it would be like an DC-8-10 or maybe it would be like a VW diesel!
