Even now not all electricity is fossil fueled.
Electric cars run on whatever source of electricity they use. Here is the Pacific Northwest where I live we get a significant amount from hydroelectric and some from wind. Even if it is fossil fuel powered electricity it is probably more efficient than the approximately 20% efficiency of an internal combution engine. If some of the battery technology that's being developed comes to fruit batteries and hybrids won't be an issue.
