Why does everyone bring up long road trips when discussions about electric cars are brought up?
I agree that the mileage of an electric should be ~100 miles to satisfy most anyone's daily commutes, beyond that, if you're traveling out of town, just get a rental and don't put the mileage on your car.
That said, induction charging is stupid. The loss is unreal in something you're trying to make as efficient as possible (I thought that was the point of electrics anyway).
Just plug the damn thing in. It's not terribly hard to do.
I think a better way to get around all this BS is just make the batteries in cars easily removable and able to be changed out with fresh ones in a couple minutes with an automated system. Then there's like 5 different configurations of batteries, for different applications (ie a sports car has a dense, small, battery array that can be discharged quickly for the POWERRRRR, a minivan has a large one with less fancy, cheaper batteries, etc). Stop at the "gas station", a guy comes out, uses some apparatus to change out the batteries, and then drive. The initial cost of the batteries will be built into the cost of the vehicle, the cost of maintaining healthy batteries is built into what you pay the "gas station".
