    it's a death trap.

    All small cars have low safety ratings. If it's a "green" car, the standards are lowered.

    If I recall; 2000 more deaths a year are acceptable.


    Not to mention it doesn't save fuel, you have to pay to have its charger installed and all drives must be round trip since there is no place to plug it in.

    You can plug it into a household outlet, it just takes longer to charge. It also can run with the aid of gasoline

    As yet nobody have ever shown us how electric cars are a solution to our energy problems.

    They still demand the same amount of energy to do the work as every other car.

    I'll probably buy several in the next few years. I've got this big hole out back and figure they'll be cheap fill.

    Bingo!! the question is how many miles per pound of coal. Its a slight of hand thing,you won't see the trick if your not paying attention.

    Electric cars are part of our future,we just need to keep perspective.
