Puzzling Choice Between Electric Car and Motorcycle
I’m wondering if everyone is watching the Super Bowl today or are there people thinking about electric vehicles, EV? For those of you, this one’s for you. There’s no denying that both electric cars and motorcycles have a lot to offer each their own way but as the technology matures, both increasingly become more appealing for different reasons. While space might still be an issue for daily drivers, range is more than sufficiently met with most electric vehicles, EV. Lithium batteries are becoming more efficient in both cases making the ultimate choice between one or the other more difficult.
The Case For Electric Cars. The case for electric cars is pretty simple, space for at least two, if not four or more people. Range is more than sufficient today considering 80% of our daily commute can be handled with any EV on the market today. Price is the sticky point but if the 2013 trends are anything to judge by, carmakers are working very hard to bring down the prices on electric cars. Case in point, CODA offered plenty of weekend deals last year that got all their 2012 models out the door.
The Smart ForTwo EV realized car buyers saw the competing 4 seater i MiEV was only a few thousand dollars more as a better alternative. The Smart EV reduced its price to now well within reach for most starting at $25,000 minus the $7,500 Federal incentives if you are in the right tax bracket, which brings it down to an affordable $17,500. Add to this your State and in certain areas local rebates and you are looking at an EV flirting with the $15,000 bracket.
