TOTD: Would You Ever Consider Buying an Electric Car?
With automakers introducing electric cars that push the envelope in terms of styling and performance, the tailpipe-emissions-free cars are starting to become more acceptable. Take, for example, the stunning Tesla Model S, which won our 2013 Motor Trend Car of the Year. Audi’s e-tron concept is also proof that an electric car doesn’t have to look like the Mitsubishi i-MiEV. So what would it take for you to consider buying an electric car?
Electrification has even spread to the world of motorsports, with the very first Formula E race scheduled for 2014. Quick chargers are also becoming more advanced, so getting a full charge won’t be as much of a hassle if the charing station isn’t taken by another electric car driver. Even so, electric cars have a long way to go before they’re perceived in a more positive light by most consumers.
For today’s TOTD, we want to know what it would take for an electric car to work for you. If popular concerns such as charging time, range, prices, and acceleration were addressed, would you ever replace your gas-powered car with an electric one? Let us know in the comments below, and thanks to RedChocobo for today’s TOTD.
