Sometimes I wonder, what % of people live in apartment complexes and/or communities where they have no garages, and hence are unable to charge their vehicles from home (and therefore not able to consider an electric car).

Commented On: Electric Cars In "No Benefit For Poor Communities" Shocker

"Awareness of incentives - is it really that low?"

I agree with the author.

I don't think awareness for incentives is a limiting factor for adoption in poor communities. Would they really care that the $400 Iphone has a $20 off coupon this weekend if they're busy struggling to put food on the table and pay for housing? The pricing means it's so far outside of their reach that tiny incentives will not change that fact.

And I believe that the adoption by those who can afford it (i.e. the early adopters) will encourage competition, technology research, and future product improvements that will eventually make this viable for the masses.
