To the OPs question, electric isn't good or bad, it's just different. An EV may or may not fit your driving needs (like any vehicle) so you need to be sure that it can before going the electric route. Range is always the big issue, whether it's a second or only vehicle, cold climate, etc. You should be conservative with the range "estimates" provided since cold weather, high speed driving, etc. can affect the range greatly. If you plan to use it as an in town commuter, errand runner, it can work great.
And while this may be obvious, make sure you have a secure place to charge. Running an extension cord out the window to the street isn't a viable option.
120/240V charging is also a consideration as well as 3rd party charging stations in your area (if any).
In short, several factors to consider. Pros and cons like any vehicle purchase.
