Isn't the Electric Car Dead?

I recently blogged on the upcoming guilt trip that is 'Who Killed the Electric Car.' I commented that the beauty of a market economy is that if there is demand for it, the market will produce it.

Well, crazy as it sounds, it looks like someone has revived the electric car: Tesla Motors. It's a startup founded by Google, Ebay and PayPal. At $100,000 or more, it doesn't look like the Tesla is for the average driver. But if you're willing to pay more to protect the environment, while still getting what seems like a cool ride, maybe the Tesla is for you.

There's positive response over at Kausfiles, as well.

Back to the top.
