    which is the advantange electric cars have over all those others:  you can go to a dealer and buy one today.  And it'll fit in our existing infrastructure

    Touch all that arises with a spirit of compassion

    •  Good luck buying an electric out here... (0+ / 0-)

      Electric cars are available pretty much only on the coasts and in metro areas. The Chevy dealer 20 miles away had a demo Volt, but only because GM had a hard time selling them and sent a few unsold ones to rural dealers. The closest dealer to me, 5 miles away, doesn't carry the Volt. The nearest Nissan dealer is 70 miles away, and I don't think they carry their electric car. None of the Ford dealers around here carry the electric Focus, and with the contractor that does the electric conversion gone bankrupt, there's no Focus electrics available anyway.

      And a lot of us out here need a truck or at least a van or something that can pull a trailer, and there's no electrics that can do those jobs.
