It's extremely important that electric cars don't look like electric cars. I mean, if people wanted to buy George Jetson's one-seater bubble car, GM would be selling one-seat bubble cars. People don't want bubble cars.
Which is why it's so great to hear that Hybrid Technologies is building an electric vehicle that will look and act just like a Mini Cooper. Well, maybe it won't act exactly the same. It'll take five hours to fill up it's lithium polymer batteries and it will only go 150 miles on a full charge.
But I guess the most important difference is the price. This attractive EV costs about three times the base price of the Mini Cooper, almost $60,000. And that, my friends, is Who Killed the Electric Car.
