Electric Cars Are Here; More Coming

The future is now.

WTMJ should be so proud to have such a pro American such as Sykes on their team. Does Murdock own them?

Wow - I did not realize the aspect of electric cars where free charging stations and reserved parking spots are being provided by government and employers.

Is the government also going to pay the $1,500 for my home charging station? Of course they will - look for a tax credit coming soon. Now if we can just get them to pay my electric bill we will be all set.

And I sure would like to be able to afford to live in that Bay area neighborhood CA where everyone owns one of the $109,000 Tesla Roadsters, but alas.

You forgot to mention the cleaner air you will be breathing.

James - possibly cleaner air depending on how the electricity is being generated.

Realizing I come across as being anti-electric car, in fact I am not.

Am just cynical about them since I have been waiting for a realistically functional and effective one to be brought to market since the "oil crisis" of 1973.

37 years later and we are almost kinda there, but there is still a long way to go.

They are far from cost effective and their overall environmental impact is still open to debate imho.
