Tesla makes beautiful cars that are on par with some of the nicest ones out there. The range of their cars is well over 200 miles, making them suitable for most urban and suburban commuters.
The infrastructure for electric cars is increasing as well. Many workplaces are putting in charging stations and offering parking incentives for those driving electric vehicles.
Passing the 100,000 threshold requires our society to take the electric car seriously. I predict that there will be 1,000,000 electric cars on the road in 5 years. Once things like this take off, they boom very quickly.
