Electric Cars ARE Coming, But It Will Be Slow: Why Is This So Hard To Grasp?

I definitely agree with your analysis John. Carlos Ghosn of Nissan is pragmatic and the Leaf was created as a relatively inexpensive yet high quality EV with a price of $38,299 along with the Federal $7,500 tax credit at $30,799. The Leaf was never intended for people who drive more than 75 miles per day and Nissan chose a range of 75-90 miles so they could market the car in this price range. Tesla on the other hand plays to a much different market and the Model S at $57,500 will be $50,000 after the $7,500 tax credit. Both cars will influence people’s views about whether an EV will work for their driving habits. Tesla could be a game changer because its performance and styling is consistent for the price range of ICE cars it's marketed in.
