  •  The pioneers did conversions and drove EV-1s (4+ / 0-)

    Buying a production car is late the table, and while the Tesla is the most impressive EV, it was hardly the first.  Unfortunately, GM did everything they could to discourage people from leasing the EV-1, refused to sell them, and then took them away and crushed them.

    The Leaf hit the roads in Spring 2011 or so.  At this point there are so many all-electric models coming out I can't even count them out without thinking anymore.

    We joke about the number of Priuses around here (it really does seem like 1 out of every 3 cars around here is one), but it's the EVs that are popping up everywhere here in Silicon Valley as well.

    •  I know, I feel like a drone in my prius (2+ / 0-)

      because there are so many here in Sacramento.

      I am retiring in 6.5 years, so I may not get a replacement car for the Prius, but if I did, I would get the extended range electric (Volt), the best of both worlds and better gas mileage than the Prius.
