Do you think electric vehicles will eventually become the norm?

If there is one industry which continues to split opinion it has to be the electric vehicle industry which has developed over the last decade but has yet to hit the mass market. Many people automatically assume that the industry will crash and burn, while others suggest electric vehicles and their future offspring will become the norm and take over from gasoline fuelled transport.

When you look at the amount of money which governments, companies and indeed taxpayers, both directly and indirectly, are investing in the industry, can we really afford to let the electric vehicle industry fail again?
