I drive a Nissan Leaf, so that's a choice I made. Let's look at the pros and cons ...
EVs are great to drive. They're smooth, quiet, and responsive. They have fewer moving parts than petrol or diesel so are more reliable and you will save cash on visits to the mechanic over its lifetime. In terms of safety, EVs are as safe or safer than similarly sized petrol or diesel in collisions, which you can check out by looking at the safety ratings. They are very cheap to run. I spend about 4 euro a week on charging it compared to a 30 euro a week for petrol but that's dependent on nation and your milage. Insurance also tends to be lower.
For most people, an EV really only makes sense as a second car for trips to work or shops. The ranges are fine for my commute every day, but not if you want to do bigger distances. Charging at home is simple. Charging elsewhere is a mess at the moment - chargers blocked by parked cars, not working, etc. They are expensive, so you only recoup the cost if you keep an EV for a while. I worked out I have to keep my Leaf for at least 4 years before I see the financial benefit of running it. The resale value, if you decide to sell it, is horrendeous but this is improving. Most companies are now giving 8 year warranties on the batteries.
If you want a second car for commuting and general running around a city or town then an EV is a good option if you plan on keeping it for 5 years ir more. If you want a first car and the ability to do long drives I'd go for a plug in hybrid.
