I saw the commercial a few nights ago for the LEAF, due by the end of 2010. The upside to the electric car, it’s great for the environment. And independent mechanics will adapted to the changing market (i.e. by installing “charging hubs” in their businesses, and make charging costs more competitive than the dealerships, or the local electric company) – just an idea. So now we’ll see how quickly GM gets it act together, and deliver their version of the Electric car, the “plug-in hybrid vehicle”-Chevrolet Volt, at an estimated market value of $40,000 (USD).
