One of the main drawbacks of Electrical Vehicles is that they have to be put on charge for long time after a certain number of miles. Another drawback is the cost of an electric car. The Tesla Roadster has a price of US$109,000 in the U.S. and a base price of £86,950 in the UK and €84,000 in continental Europe. Conveting a engine-powered car into electric isn't that much cheaper either.

Traction motors are used in electrically powered rail vehicles such as electric multiple units and electric locomotives, other electric vehicles such as electric milk floats, elevators, conveyors, and trolleybuses, as well as vehicles with electrical transmission systems such as diesel-electric, electric hybrid vehicles and battery electric vehicles. Additionally, electric motors in other products (such as the main motor in a washing machine) are described as traction motors.

Yes, they are electric.
The all electric vehicle is the latest attempt at eliminating green house gas emissions from individual transportation. The major drawback for these vehicles is their limited range, usually less than 100 miles between battery charges. Manufacturers are addressing this issue. By incorporating new technology, vehicle ranges are being extended. This means that electric vehicles can become more than commuter transportation and enable gas savings in other uses of a vehicle.

Electric vehicles are becoming more popular. They are not a traditional alternative fuel. Electric vehicles are expected to have an increase in the battery life, making them more popular with consumers.
Eventually electric cars will replace internal combustion vehicles this will take place over the years as the production and interest in electric vehicles increases. This will happen because electric vehicles are safer, better for the environment, and more efficient.
Currenty electric vehicles are the most fuel efficient vehicles and are better for the environment. Hybrids and hydrogen vehicles are also good for protecting the environment and pretty efficient.
