"I am all for electric vehicles but the range and charging limitations simply do not make them viable as an only vehicle."

Yup. Expensive toys for rich people. Case example: Tesla.

And I can bet it uses at least 4 times of the resources of an ordinary car during its lifetime. Just making it uses more than 2 ordinary cars.

The damage aspect is interesting: Phone batteries burning and/or exploding is already a major problem in airplanes. Imagine what happens when batteries are 100 times that size and do the same.

Exploding gas tank doesn't happen often, exploding battery is almost daily news.
