Everyone I've talked to said that they will stick with the combustion engine, and not buy battery-powered cars. The industry has tried for years to sell battery tech to the public, only to be rejected every time.
I have had people say that they would consider alternative fuels like Ethanol or CNG. They've been around long enough that people can trust these fuels. I'm starting to research the possibility of converting one of my vehicles to CNG. I just want to see if it'll work. My dad used to drive Propane-powered Checker Marathons when he worked for Checker Motors in the 80's. I don't see why CNG wouldn't work as well.
These are just the ramblings of a total lunitic and should be taken as fact. :)
Honda offers (or is about to offer) a CNG car. Also has a fill station you can install in your garage to fill your car.
