I have a partial zero emissions Subaru, but I would like to go the hybrid route one day. Maybe with my next new car.

Kwee, This is a different kind of event. We were just talking with a buyer who said he has been wanting to get an electric car now for the past year, but he said he may wait a little longer as newer and better are on the horizon...

Kwee, How exciting!  I agree with Joan Cox that states with less harsh winters will probably be the leaders with electric cars.  I am would love one, but I live in a rural area where traveling 6 hours before charging would be a requirement. 

I had no idea when the electric car was invented!

Currently I have a Hybrid, Kwee.  Though, I'm pretty sure my next one will be an all electric car.

Kwee, I've considered a new Hybrid recently mostly because it offers more horsepower than my current car...the good thing is I don't have to plug it in, but it still gets nearly 40 mpg.  Price tag is a little steep at well over $50K!

Kwee, When I come up beside an electric car I am always impressed that they are so quiet and then can immediately take out. We will continue to see more and more of these.

Kwee, I like the name "National Drive Electric Week rather than "Plug in Day". It's certainly a good cause for awareness and preserving our air quality.

We see some here, Kwee, but not an over-whelming amount.  I prefer to wait till they become more reliable....wouldn't want to run out of power And get stuck on the Skyway Bridge .
