i read that for some of those electric cars that charging time can be a few hours, even if it's just half that for a bike, it's still a lot of time. rahter go petrol

Yea but you have to think about how far you'll be riding and how long you'll have to charge it back up whenever you're stopped. I think that people want a lot more range than they actually need. Chargers should get better and be able to charge things faster in the future. So maybe you just have to wait it out for a few more years.

that is true
just have to do the math and see if it actually works out for you, some people may be able to get away with not charging it all day and still do their usual commute.
