Would I consider buying an electric car?
Yes, I’ll be in the market for an electric car as soon as they get
1) components (including batteries) with warranties of no less than five years
2) a full charge driving range of 400 miles
3) a crossover SUV design no smaller than the Chevy Equinox
4) an MSRP comparable to that of an equal size gasoline powered vehicle
5) recharge stations in convenient travel locations
6) recharge time of less than 5-minutes
It is interesting to see how this all is evolving. For right now, gasoline-electric hybrids are the best bet. I am curious to see if the infrastructure needed along our interstate highways (primarily the recharge stations) will fall into place for the all-electric-cars. Heck, I am old enough to remember a time when every roadside mom and pop store had a gasoline pump at the curbside. As for the current crop of short-range electric commuter cars, I am wondering whether some of our more enterprising corporations (such as Wal-Mart) will start offering free (or cheap) “recharge while you shop.”
I am not a “greenie” trying to save the world from real or imagined climate catastrophe; I simply do not like our buying oil from people who hate our guts. The sooner we can say goodbye to foreign oil, the better off we will be.
