Don't write off electric vehicles just yet. The problem is that GM and Nissan's
products and marketing have been all wrong from the start. The car
companies should have launched electric vehicles designed for specific target
audiences that would appreciate cheap transport and would be willing to take the
risk -- utilities (for their fleets; similar to how Questar has natural gas
service vehicles) and delivery companies (UPS, FEDEX). I read that both UPS and
FEDEX have been experimenting with electric trucks and have found the cost
savings very worthwhile! Why can't GM make electric trucks for them?Creating an electric service vehicle for utilities, which would love to use
their own cheap electricity (wholesale) rather than buy gasoline for their
fleets of trucks and cars, would have been a better move.
OH, I just have to refrain from any negative comments about the Volt. I just
hope in ten months this downward spiral will change.
Is Chevy selling them in Utah?
Another Obama green energy fiasco. Face it folks it don't work. But do nothing
about fuel costs!
Like Solyndra, this is another Obama waste of tax payer money.
