I agree..

and there are some examples.. There is currently an EV conversion of the 
Transit Connect, that looks promising.. but it's just too expensive.


Please don't think that I'm "bashing EV's just to be bashing"...I'm not.. I'm appealing for
one that actually does what I need.

I can't shrink the number of miles between where I live, and where I need to go..
(and I can't sell and move, for a number of reasons.)

And I can't "not haul the things I need to"..

If I could have the choice between the Transit Connect EV and the gas engine, for
a reasonable premium.. I'd do it in a heartbeat.

I have tried (twice) to get my employer to install a charging station.. they won't
do it. The reason stated is "liability". (Bogus in my opinion.)

There is no place around within a reasonable distance that has a public charging

So.. Yes, I'd love to be able to use an EV..

I'd even thought of buying one of the surplus S-10's.. if I could charge at work.

Get me a 100 mile range Gizmo with the load carrying capacity.. and I'm there!
