bloomberg.com - electric vehicle sales quintupled in 4 years with global sales of 288,500 units last year, more than five times the number in 2011, and manufacturers are preparing for more.

Huffington Post: 8 Things We Bet You Didn't Know About Electric Cars
Fifteen years ago, the idea of an electric vehicle would have conjured images of futuristic machines that were both electric and could somehow fly.
Now, although we have yet to make hovercrafts a viable option, electric vehicles are no longer just playthings or vague innovations. They are real, they are here, and they are likely even cooler than you ever realized.

* They Put Some Muscle Cars To Shame
Electric vehicles bring energy efficiency to a whole new level. Since their engines work through non-combustion means, these cars have 100 torque at zero rpm. Some of the most beautiful, powerful vehicles in the world don't come anywhere near that.

* They Can Likely Take You As Far As You Need To Go Throughout The Day
A study conducted by two PhD students at Columbia University found that electric vehicles could be used for 95 percent of daily trips in America. This is to say that most people drive under 30 miles in a given day, and could easily rely on the charge of just one night in a garage.

* You Can Literally See The Difference
Unlike traditional gas cars, EVs don’t emit visible tailpipe exhaust. And 100 percent electric cars don't even need a tailpipe! In addition to being shockingly quiet, you can actually get a physical sense of the environmental difference you are making.

* They Can Actually Save You Money
Owning an electric car can be a huge boon to your bank account. First, let's talk about the tax credits: EV owners are eligible for a tax credit up to $7,500 from the federal government, and many other states offer additional incentives. Some local governments are even getting in on the action, with places like San Joaquin Valley, CA offering a $3,000 incentive. In addition, many experts say that EVs can, in fact, save you money on a basic fuel to upkeep scale. While the savings are pretty obvious if you own an electric car for at least five years, the payoff can come much earlier. In addition, the low maintenance, HOV lanes can certainly skim down on added costs, among other perks.

By the end of 2015, around 98 percent of the US population would lie within range of a station. Networks were being established in Europe and Asia too.

Top 10 Things You Didn’t Know About Electric Vehicles

Electric Cars: A Review Of 2014
The United States is the largest electric car market in the world. Through November of this year, 83,647 electric cars were sold in America. While this represents a 26-percent increase over the number sold during the same period in 2013, it is a small percentage of the total U.S. market, and the impact of gasoline at $2.25 per gallon is yet to be determined.
In Europe, 72,419 electric cars were sold through October. The Mitsubishi Outlander, a PHEV, leads the way with a 23 percent market share, and the Nissan Leaf and BMW i3 follow with another 28 percent of the market.

Electric car owners 'will never buy conventional cars again'

(Reuters) - Toyota Motor Corp (7203.T) said it would recall a combined 361,800 vehicles globally, including the Camry sedan, covering three separate defects.
Subject to the recalls are 170,000 Camrys to fix a faulty ball joint that could cause a loss of control of the vehicle. Europe accounts for the majority with about 120,000 vehicles, followed by 40,000 in Japan, Toyota said.
Another recall covers 105,800 Hiace, Regius Ace and Dyna models, mainly in Japan, to replace the fuel pipe. The third recall is for 86,000 Crown and Crown Majesta models in Japan to replace the outer seat belt assemblies.

Though large number of electric cars is not running in our roads today but still it's the future of auto industry. Of course its regular expenses are less than the fuel/gas cars.
