I personally don't see the electric car being the vehicle of the future. Hydrogen powered cars I think would be the best development. Hydrogen is one of the most abundant chemicals in the universe and the hydrogen powered cars they have now expel nothing but H2O from the exhaust. Battery powered cars a much better than what we've got at the moment, but they do often take a while to charge which can be a pain if you're on holiday somewhere driving down the highway. At home though, it's a good method of transportation. At the same time though, the nickel and cobalt that is mined, refined, and assembled into batteries in many different countries can have a very negative impact on the environment, which is one of the reasons why I don't think it would be the best source of power for future transportation.
Also why has no one mentioned public transportation. Taking the train is awesome. So's the bus, but you gotta watch out for sniper bullets on the latter method.
