The Problem with Electric Cars

Pretty much all the current problems with electric cars can be summed up with this glorified puff piece on the new Ford all-electric Focus. Sure, it’s technologically advanced and looks just like the gasoline-powered Focus, but who the hell is going to plunk down nearly $40,000 for a car that can only drive 76-miles before having to recharge the engine for three hours?

Until motor companies can sell an electric vehicle that costs between $15-$20,000 and gets closer to 500 miles per charge I just can’t fathom them becoming a viable option.
