Zero emissions? Oh really, since when was generating electricity pollution free?
Environmentalists are against nuclear power and they want us to tear out dams that generate hydro-electric power.

Wow, nine fast charging stations in nearly 600 miles. Most electric cars do not have the range to make it between charging station.

CNG (compressed natural gas) is very abundant in the US, is nearly half the price of gasoline, is piped into almost every gas station (for heat) and burns very nicely in gasoline engines. It is also much cleaner burning.

I say we switch to dual fuel (gasoline and CNG) and continue research into electric vehicles.

Stopping to charge batteries every 50 to 60 miles when my car can go overy 350 miles between fill-ups is a non-starter.

Let's just say I am not impressed.
