The Electric Car Will Be Like The Electric Fence?


From Sami Grover of
"What do the Nissan Leaf, the Mini Cooper Mini E and the Think City Car – have in common? Well, probably a lot since they are all pure electric vehicles, but the answer we were looking for was that they all have a 100-mile range (give or take). While this range is less than a third of most conventional cars with a full tank of gasoline, Sami Grover over at Treehugger wonders if this short range isn't a good thing and that an electric car's limited range may "actually be their biggest benefit." How's that now? Okay, let us explain. When Grover says "benefit," he's really talking about the benefit to society and the environment, not so much a benefit to sales or to drivers and what they expect from a $30,000 (give or take) piece of machinery."
What Mr. Grover refers to, is that people won't travel as far because they won't be able to - confining us to "our places" and putting us in "our spots"!
