It all seems rather fanciful to me.
Whatever happens in the future we'll be expected to pay for it all.
Taxes will be placed on electric cars probably sooner than you think.
At present they seem such a good idea mainly because so much speculative money is being thrown at it, the government is distorting the market (never a good thing, take my word for it) and lies are being told.... that's my take.

As for oil running out that won't happen as soon as you think because new reserves are being found albeit more difficult to access.
I snigger to myself with the self-satisfied attitude many people have over their electric car being so easy to manage.
I cannot reconcile myself with the green credentials of millions of half ton batteries being moved about all the time and their manufacture, upkeep etc.
What I do foresee is that, unlike the combustion engine car, electric cars will be for the rich who have money.
The poor will not be using them much, it will cost too much to take part in this wonderful but rather drab future we are being told we will have.

Soon it will be illegal to actually drive a car.
PC pressure will make it "unacceptable".

But when we have another war all things will change..... and we will.
