Plug-in Electric Vehicules

It is the year of 2011 and the electric vehicle market seems still unborn. If you consider that the goal for the year is of 1 million PEVs (plug-in electric vehicle) on the road and that we are about to start the 9th month of the year, then you will agree with me. I still don’t see many electric vehicles parked outside my home. And when I get to Ikea, I really can say for far away that the non-taken parking spots are exactly those reserved for electric cars.
Should we shake this market? I guess so, but should we change completely to electric vehicles? Why are governments so anxious to make one type of energy the prevailing one? Meaning oil, or electricity or natural gas. Can we afford having all 3 different sources and stop the monopoly on oil? I don’t know.
