Granted the newer car technologies - hybrids, electric, natural gas and converted diesel are so much better for the environment, and if all of us were smart, we'd get one!
In rolled about 25 cars - Nissan Leaf,Toyota RAV EV, Mercedes e-cell, Chevy Volt, Toyota Prius Hybrid Synergy Drive, and the very newest, Tesla which were on view and some of them test-driven.
Tesla was only for show....
The Chevy Ecco cars made by GM, were the least expensive (with incentives from the State of California) - with Spark starting at around $18k, but is about as small as they come.
it has a lot of great features. This is a hugely popular car, especially in Europe.
The most tricked out displayed belonged to Toyota, and the sales team asked me immediately if I wanted to get on video describing my feelings about electric cars for a bottle of water. Not really.
They had cut in half their RAV EV model...which looks a bit weird this way.
And then explained how they combined the batteries.....exponentially adding to the power of the car.
Get used to seeing this.....
