Electric cars means you keep folks controlled in areas. Maybe? Just a thought.

Not at all. Electricity is easier to generate and distribute than it is to refine and distribute gas.

Yeah if all the infrastructure is there. Also explain to me how charging a battery is going to compete with filling up with gas in terms of time?

EVs and ICE cars will have different routines for filling up. For an EV, all you do is drive home, plug it in, and forget about it. If you're traveling long distance weekly then a gas or hybrid is better. Fast charging constantly is bad for it's health but it will allow you to drive an EV cross country for the occasional vacation.

Fast charging itself depends largely on the model. Generally 15-30 minutes and you can charge while eating or stretching.

There's also the added benefit of having free power if you generate your own electricity and thus don't have to rely on fuel.

Edit: Also you realize an EV could be plug in any 120 or 240v outlet right? Its not hard to find an outlet

If it takes you 30 minutes to stretch then your fat ass ought to have jogged.

But seriously, "It's just different, a unique approach to driving" is forced relativism. Electric cars are stupid because you can't fucking get anywhere long distance without massive stops. You'll be real good and stretched by the time your twelve-hour 120V charge is finished. Electric cars are stupid because software development is unreliable trash, but your whole car is now a piece of software. Electric cars are stupid because [Your License Number Has Been Selected To Drive On Even Numbered Days Only]. Electric cars are stupid because lithium and nickel aren't easy or impact-free to mine, and China effortlessly outmaneuvered us by simply buying off our worst politicians, and now we're not in a position to control our own supply of either.
