I think consumers killed the electric car personally... afraid of the range I assume.
I'm not surprised really that it didn't take off. I mean how many tons of coal does it take to charge one up and how does that compare to amount of gas you burn? I was "told" that you put more greenhouse gases in the air when you charged an electric car than when you drove a golf or a jetta.
Personally I'm not a fan of either that or a hybrid till the technology gets cheaper.
