These electric cars have interested me for a while. It was the Tesla that first caught my eye, and now it seems we are seeing them all over the place.
This news item caught my eye this morning:
They are talking about leasing the battery to you. My question is do you save that much over a traditional gas motor when you have to pay $300 per month just for use of the battery? The $550 per month sounds nice for unlimited mileage, but I bet that was close to what I used to spend on my truck each month for gas if not more.
I checked the website of the Better Place company, and it looks like they are starting in California and Hawaii.
This makes it sound real, although I haven’t seen one on the road yet.
