    I am a fan of electric cars, just not subsidized ones like the volt. I have zero use for one because I need more range.

    Let the market decide.

    I cant afford a Tesla, and the volt is 40 mile range. Give the Volt a 200 mile range, stop having the government pay $7500 per vehicle, bring the price down to the price of an accord, and I'd actually strongly consider one.

    I've never seen a comparison of the C02 footprint of an electric car vs a gas one. That is key for me or there isn't really any reason to do it. And yes, they need 200 mile range and fast, easy 110V charges.

    I thought at first this might be about Nikola Tesla's magic radio wave car.

    I would wager the production and subsequent disposal of the EV battery is overwhelming compared to the difference between a standard engine emissions vs a power plant's "Green" index.
