The small, economy version now available in Germany is below $5,000 and that means auto insurance is much cheaper, not to mention all the other savings. No gas, 70% less maintenance, mile for mile it is less than 25% of a standard gasoline car. Not the time for luxury land yachts in these times.

Yes, they have electric golf carts too. How come people don't drive them or is that what is pictured in your question.

Tough

Yea, but I have a problem with that long extension cord.

Did you know there was an abundance of electric car dealerships until the manufacturers mysteriously started to recall them all?http://www.sonyclassics.com/whokilledthe…And by the way, these types of cars and smart cars have rigid steel-caged cabins to prevent serious injury in the event of an accident.

Yes, and the slightest of accidents will leave you badly injured if not dead. I'll transport my kids more safely, thank you.

Electric cars aren't even an option worth looking at until they can drive 300-500 miles on a charge and then be recharged within about 3-5 minutes maximum. Until then they can't replace regular cars.For the most part if an electric fits someone's needs then they should use public transportation instead and eliminate the need for a car at all. I'm sure one day battery technology will get even better, but I don't know how they will ever solve the problem of recharge time. Then there's the unknown impact on the power grid that plugging in 300 million vehicles overnight to charge will have.

No one makes a bullet-proof limosine with an electric motor, so neither one is interested.

That car looks like it might be wrecked in the picture. I'm not sure though. The picture is very small.

Is it important that your auto insurance company has an office in your town?
No, strictly speaking it's not important... but it can be helpful, especially if you've never bought a policy before. I found it was much easier to talk to someone in person rather than over the phone when I was trying to decide how much coverage I needed. Plus it can sometimes be easier...

How are these people comparing auto insurance to healthcare insurance? Isn't it painfully obvious?
They don't understand the Constitution. It belabors the obvious why comparing the "individual mandate" to compulsory auto insurance under state laws is specious. First, unlike the individual states, the federal government does not have a plenary police power to enact laws solely for public...
