I think electric cars are a waste of time.
I also think that the gas engine has more
than proved itself. Do you want to plug
your in at night, Not everyone has a garage.
Plus in Ohio we have cold winters, also I
drive many miles per day. Plus who wants
to sit in a recharging station.Replacement
batteries will cost a fortune!!

Prices are basicly in collapse for off lease electric cars. No one wants these cars. You are thus able to buy an off lease Leaf or Volt for pocket change. If you want a nice electric, the off lease ones are a buy.

Ironically , Nissan offers the $199/month Leaf lease so its actually cheaper to lease a new one. This will soon make the off lease Leafs further collapse in price. The dealer may pay you to take it off his hands.

I don't own an electric or diesel vehicle but that doesn't mean I won't have one in the future. Never say never.

I drove one about 45 years ago. Those bumper cars are a hoot.
