CT: I agree for now because of the range issue.

Hybrids will be the better choice, but the batteries issues will need to be solved.

Electric grounds tools is an excellent idea, and the best answer for me. I now have two chainsaws, one push mower and a heavy trimmer that I use, and my wife has a blower. No moving parts, and with the cost low on the implements, one can purchase enough batteries to keep it all working.

Another factor is that I can carry two sharp chainsaws into the woods, with one 40V and two 80V batteries in my backpack, where I can do some decent damage on small trees and brush.

Top factor besides few moving parts is a sense of quiet, which truly works for me. I pull the trigger and the equipment works, I take my finger off the trigger and instant quiet. I like that since I like quiet when I work, especially in the woods, where there are plenty of big bear in my forest. Bear will let you know when you get to close.

Absolutely NO electric car for me. Too expensive. Too little range. Too long to recharge. Too prone to spontaneous combustion.
