Not only are EV's already cheaper/more efficient to operate than gas powered cars, look at the potential for maintenance savings when you think about the far fewer moving parts that make up an electric motor compared to pistons.  A Tesla Model S has fewer than 150 moving parts, including the drive train, windows, controls, suspension and doors. A typical internal combustion engine car has about 10,000. Agreed up front cars are currently higher sticker price but will drop as more people switch, and of course you don't have to buy a Tesla just like you don't have to buy a Cadillac.

I don't know much about cars anymore, but browsing around it seems there are lots of used ones around now too. That's when EV's becomes more accessible to many more people.

What is the life of an EV?
