Tesla says it will soon have a +$40k sedan with a range of over 200 miles and the Chevy volt is to soon be out. Anyone ready to take the plunge?

Just went over 47,000 gas-free miles in a 2011 Nissan Leaf. An eco electric car has pros & cons to it. We like ours, that's for sure. It serves its niche in our family fleet well.

Most likely a hybrid from Honda/Acura or Toyota/Lexus. I live in the boonies.

"Yep! I wish the Prius plug-in was available in FL."

You're better-off keeping your Prius.
