That didn't include the cost of the batteries, which are an expensive component by themselves.

Here we go again Beating the Drums again about the Clean Power . 

Dirty Power ,More Expensive to manufacture,cost more to Buy ,Not Enough Kilometers per Charge .Need Trailer with Spare charged Batteries .

Replacement of Batteries cost an arm and a leg,  It won't happen overnight but it Will happen the cost of your electricity Will go through the Roof.

The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) has launched prototype electric motorbike taxis and boats to support electric vehicle use in public transportation, aiming to reduce air pollution and particulate matter of 2.5 microns or less (PM2.5).

Applause.

Why? Motorbike taxi mostly will wait for customer a lot of the time, except at rush hour. So there would be plenty time for recharge the battery. This for itself I would see as possible. But the cost I see as disadvantage...
