    Not me, I have bought the last vehicle I will buy in my lifetime.
    I have not bought new for about 20 years anyway. Too much money flushed for status.

    I did buy a Prius a couple of years ago, but that was for my business.

    Not me, I don't buy compact cars made by American companies. :D
    Of course when I buy a Toyota or Honda it was still made in the US. ;)

    These guys have succeed! And its a huge first step toward the electric car. A 5 seater, cool-looking, fast, efficient family car.

    Why it will sell:
    (1) It looks sleek and cool. Image is important
    (2) While $50K is expensive, its affordable to a lot of people in the upper middle class
    (3) 300 mile range on a 45 minute charge. If you have a 20 mile commute, then you can go 15 days without charging. 45 min charge, is very short. Even outside salesmen can survive! Not too many people are going to do 300 miles in a day too often. 300 miles is more than enough for the vast majority of people!
    (4) Family Car: It can fit 5 adults and 2 children.
    (5) More Cargo space than station wagons!
    (6) 0-60 mph in 5.6 seconds (that is pretty fast)
    (7) No Gas = No carbon Emission = No pollution
    (8) People will like the fact that they are delivering a great economic blow to Russia, Iran, Venezuela, Iraq, Sudan, Saudi Arabia etc and freeing America of foreign oil!

    My friend and her boyfriend have an 04 just like yours, but it is blue. It sounds exactly the same! :D

    The first chain of restaruants along the interstates to install charging stations will make a mint.

    Now if I only had an extra $50,000....

    Although even if I did have it I wouldn't spend it on something that's going to depreciate..... I think I will continue to pay cash for a $15000 car every 5-6 years instead of buying a $50,000 and holding onto it for 15 years in order to get my money back...
