the problem with electric cars has always been ... the batteries ...

the problem with electric cars has always been the capacity of the batteries and the speed at which they recharge

Those are certainly the biggest current issues but, should we try to scale-up electric cars, the delivery of enough electricity to recharging stations (@home, @work, @'petrol' stations) - with massive spikes in typical demand times (after driving to/from work) - will become an extremely difficult problem to address.
