While there seems to be a belief that electric vehicles (EV) will soon take over highways and road ways globally, a recent study cautions against this theory.

Yes, there are some distinct advantages to widespread EVs such as cleaner air, faster acceleration, avoidance of gas stations, lack of noise and government incentives. But there are some major concerns about a complete shift from internal combustion vehicles such as battery life, battery expense, range and lack of infrastructure. Maybe the biggest misconception is about how much oil consumption will go down around the world when EVs take over.
