@Annatar: But as we have covered many times on this, both in aritcles and comments, the data on carbon emissions from electric cars even in the U.S. states with the dirtiest grids are no worse than the *most* fuel-efficient non-hybrid gasoline car.

@EM CH: No, the Smart Electric Drive is rated at 107 MPGe combined (122 MPGe city, 93 MPGe highway). See here:

Where on earth did you get "250MPGe" ???

@Bryan: Ah, you're right. I thought Musk had written 900 km, which translates to about 500 miles. My mistake. I've fixed the article.

@EV Enthusiast: I'd like to see an analysis that looks at the question of whether the Federal income-tax credit and local rebates and other incentives actually do put more electric cars on the road.

Strong anecdotal evidence from California suggests that the lower prices and HOV-Lane access *definitely* are the tipping point for some people to buy or lease these cars. But I've never seen any studies.

Have you?

@Randy: It did, but that's a different car: the Mercedes-Benz B-Class Electric Drive, shown at last spring's NY Auto Show:

@Xiaolong: Unless you've driven a C-Max in Europe, there is no C-Max in the U.S. fitted with either EcoBoost engine. Here they are only fitted with the 2.0-liter Atkinson Cycle four in conjunction with the hybrid (or Energi plug-in hybrid) system. That's not an EcoBoost.

@Steve: Sources and studies and data for this rather sweeping assertion, please?

There are a number of well-regarded studies that differ from your conclusions, so let's debate this on the merits. Please provide online links to your evidence.

@Charles: Your point that people buy plug-in electric cars for a variety of reasons is entirely accurate, as we write about fairly often and which is laid out here:

As for your opening rant ... good thing that "someone else's tax money" doesn't EVER go toward subsidies & tax breaks to the hugely profitable oil & gas industry--including that in your state--whose products have driven atmospheric carbon levels toward 400 ppm, producing a gigantic experiment in carbon saturation whose long-term effects we don't really understand.
