Likewise when the Prius was new and unknown 10+ years ago, clueless
mainstream press judged it just on cost at $2 gas prices, or said it was a
version of the crummy little Echo (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Toyota_Platz)
which it decidedly was not.

As Karl said, it's remarkable how people who spend $30K or $100K on a new
car for luxury, performance or some fantasy self-image, can't see why
anyone would buy a electric or hybrid car because of how efficient it is,
where its energy comes from, or its cutting-edge technology.

But look how popular the Prius is today. EVs will be just as popular ten
years from now. In the meantime, enjoy being ahead of the curve.
