That probably will not be the case for some time to come. As of 2009, approximately 700,000 cars in the United States had some type of electric motor. That is 1/3 of 1 percent.
Despite the above information, though, the numbers are expected to increase somewhat. According to Deloitte Consulting, they expect the market share of electric cars and plug-in hybrids to be at 0.5 percent in 2015 and somewhere between 2 and 5.6 percent by 2020.
The viability of electric cars is in serious question. As it stands, they are not economical at all. The batteries alone can cost upwards of $18,000.00 and severly limit the car manufacturers from producing a “money maker.” Until the technology is widely available (and cheap!) we will not see this type of vehicle gain much traction.
