I drive an electric car (a Nissan Leaf) for all my shorter trips (like up to 70 miles). I would say that if your situation works for an electric car, (like as a second car for driving to work), and you try one, (like a low cost used Nissan Leaf or others), you won’t want to go back to gas burners.

And once the capabilities of batteries improve, being forced to go electric will not be a sacrifice, it will be wonderful.

BTW, I charge my Leaf from roof top solar and wind farms.
