I am searching for an electric vehicle that I can buy right now. It has to reach highway speeds, get at least 50 miles per charge, and have room for 3-4 passengers (since I'll be traveling with my showgirls, Lola & Baby G). I am currently on a consumer waiting list for a Phoenix Motorcar, their SUT model pictured here.
On Friday, I watched Who Killed the Electric Car, a documentary about the auto industry's destruction of their own (successful) electric vehicle programs. EVs require little maintenance and are not dependent on gasoline-- indicating that both the oil and auto industries would suffer profit losses should the EVs catch-on.
