Why are electric cars being adopted so slow in the market?

    The batteries that would be required to drive an electric car 40 miles would cost approximately $10,000, according to the linked article. Also, electric cars are more expensive to build than the average car on the market, so they cost more to the consumer. It seems that you’d have to pay at least $40,000 to get any of the electric cars that I know of today, which is above the means of a lot of people out there.

    Another issue holding back electric cars is the fueling process.  The ease of fueling is great if you own a home.  With a standard 120 volt socket, it will take approximately 10 hours to charge your vehicle.  Those without the ability to plug their vehicle into their own home will have to locate a dedicated fueling station.  This can pose a significant problem when planning long trips.  Fortunately Google recently added the ability to search for fueling stations in Google Maps.
