Electric Cars

What is your thought on Electric cars? Are they really cheaper to drive? I’ve been looking at new vehicles, and the incentives are quite good on electric cars. This helps me lean towards getting an electric vehicle.. but which one to get? Some vehicles qualify for better incentives, others for lesser incentives.. but in the end, it is I as a consumer that has to use it, and maintain it.. and apparently its not cheap.
I’m curious to hear what others think about getting a new vehicle in 2017. Is it worth to get an electric? Are the issues with electric cars ironed out?
