  • I keep hearing "electric cars are too expensive", yet many are available for the price of the average ICE vehicle. Naysayers insist EVs are really powered mostly by coal, so are their appliances, and when did 33%-44% become "mostly"? In fact, the most recent studies show EVs pollute about half as much as what everybody else is driving. People keep telling me "I/we need more than only 80 to 100 miles range", yet there are many studies showing most of us drive less than 60 miles a day. I read or hear someone say every day "electric cars just aren't practical", but they have no experience with an EV. I wish I had a dime for every time I've heard "it's a nice toy, but you need a real car too", and I've been driving my 100% battery electric vehicle as our only car for over 10 months. Why is Ford increasing focus on electric vehicles? Because they, and GM, Nissan, BMW, VW, Jaguar, Tesla and others have spent millions of dollars on automotive marketing research and they've all come to the same conclusion. You're wrong. They aren't investing billions of dollars to save the planet. They know where their future profits are. Electric vehicles are the future and they are smart enough to know that. I guess all the people who have been telling me I'm a fool for driving an electric car since 2011 are the real fools. [ less... ]
