Is an Electric Vehicle in Your Future?

With electric vehicles finally making showroom floors the likely-hood of seeing an electric vehicle passing you by on the road is a real possibility. How about you owning an electric vehicle? I know some are still over priced, but the reality is here and now. These are electric cars you can currently purchase here in the U.S.:

The Nissan Leaf MSRP is $32,780. With the federal tax  incentives you could pay as low as $25,280. Is that something you can afford?

How about the Chevy Volt? Well that's not fully electric. But it is a big contender in the electric car market with an MSRP of $40,000.

Then there is the Tesla. High performance electric car with long range. Although an exciting car, with an MSRP of $108,000 it is definitely out of the price range of the average driver.

There are other manufacturers working on limited production electrics such as the Tango by Commuter Cars Corp, the Venturi Fetish and the Mitsubishi i-MiEV.

There is sure to be an electric vehicle out there for you to try out. Owning one is still not for the masses.
