The propaganda arm of the government apparently reaches beyond the political world now:
Motor Trend Car of the Year
If it truly is the car of the year, then it should certainly not require tax incentives or subsidies to succeed in the marketplace. Let's try it out and see who will buy one for $41,000.00.
And, then lets get some real world reports from fly-over country on how it performs in daily use.
Remember, before you buy one that you will have to have a garage for it since you can't run an extension cord out your window and down the street to your parking place. And, it would be a good idea to get an electrician to drop by and install a 240 volt outlet for you or you'll only have an electric car for half a day.
