Are we ready for electric cars?
I think it's great that we're finding alternatives for fuel, but it seems like the electric cars that are on the market (or very soon to be) aren't very practical. For example, the short distances, the charging time, and the cost.
Tell me what you think!
Electric cars are a fact this days, it is not true that electric cars cant go a long distance nor at low speed, Check out the Nissan leaf, Chevrolet Volt, Smart Fortwo ED, Coda Sedan, Tesla Roadster, Tesla Model S, Fisker Karma... All cars that in regards to design has nothing to wish to fuel cars.
the thing is, there might be some sabotage by the oil companies and so, like the whole rumor that electric cars cant go so far, and are so slow... (they made a parody of this in some simpsons episodie where the electric car ride was patrocinated by the oil company in the park)
I think we are especially if the plug converter is sold with the car.
I think we are only ready for those type of cars that come with the plug converter and or the solar cell cars.
It will take a few years for plug up stations to come alone then they might start charging people per jewel or per kilowatt lol!
Most EV's on the market get at least 100 miles per charge, Tesla gets quite a bit more... which will cover 89% of average American's driving needs.
Actually I wrote a hub about this very topic not too long ago.

What if any is the reason that you feel electric cars are impractical?With the exception of the Tesla Model S, most electric cars have a very limited range. They take longer to refuel (charge) and tend to be quite costly to purchase (compared to an equivalent-sized gas-powered car).

If people wanted to buy electric cars do you think they would without government subsidies?

You have to laugh. You've got our president pushing electric cars and here come's a TIME article siting a new study in Environmental Science & Technology saying that those electric cars aren't so clean after all. Apparently when they looked at the use of electric cars in China, the...

Do you think electric cars will become the norm for people to buy in the near future.

If electric cars had the same range and price as gas cars, would you buy one?I still want an electric SUV or Truck, but if I had the cash, I would definitely get electric
