I happened to catch 60 Minutes tonight, with an interesting story on the new and upcoming electric cars, like the Chevy Volt and Tesla's Roadster. The Atlantic Monthly has an interesting article on the Volt earlier this year. And Newsweek had an article this month on the state of the foreign competition for all-electric and plug-in hybrids. My car is 5 years old, so will be due for replacement in 3 to 5 years. Prognosticating, it seems a plug-in electric / hybrid will be a good choice then. Do you think it will happen? Will we really have sub $30k electric cars in five years?
