Ain't got NOTHING like that here in Maine. So, as it stands right now, it would be pretty much useless for me.As far as where to charge them, there are more and more charging stations for electric vehicles popping up here in western Washington, and many grocery stores and parking lots have front row parking spots with charging stations for electric cars.
I absolutely agree, they are not yet to the place where they need to be in order for most of us to say, "Hmmm...that just might work!" However, when l look at how far they have come, l have to admit that l am pretty impressed. Just a few years ago l read an article about the first Zero. It was essentially a naked urban bike, and got something like 25 miles to a charge. So we have made great progress in a short time.Ain't got NOTHING like that here in Maine.

Also, I do not shop for two hours. I go in, grab what I need, pay for it, and GTFO! When it can recharge in the amount of time it takes me to do that, THEN maybe I might consider one.
It made me wince. Aside from that, I still wouldn't buy it. Charge times are getting down to almost reasonable length, but there's still nowhere to charge it. You can't stray far from home on one of those.
