Electric Car Pricing

We have long anticipated highway capable electric cars from GM and Nissan to come in at more affordable levels. Tesla has had the highway capable Roadster electric car out for a couple of years, but let's face it, prices need to be reasonable for this industry to take off! GEM cars even seem a little expensive for what you get. Of course, the rebates from the Federal and State governments act as a type of subsidy for the industry. But eventually, those rebates are going away and the industry will have to support itself. As one famous not so economically savvy former president said, "products need to be relevant."

But hear this manufacturers: that is the truth, these cars must save people money not only at the pump, but in convenience, and at the car lot to be relevant! Let's face it, we're giving up a lot of comfort to drive an electric car. So become efficient manufacturers. You're only going to get one good shot at this. When the government decides to stop funding the industry at the tax payers expense, you're going to have to stand on your own. See the below chart for current pricing information:
