    2018 Could Be The EV’s Year

    2018 will be the year of the electric car

    Peter Valdes-Dapena, December 21, 2017 (CNN Money)

    “In 2018, electric cars will finally turn the corner…[They will still only make up just 1.5% of all U.S. auto sales…[but] Americans will finally be able to buy reasonably affordable and widely available electric cars that can hold enough power to breeze through their daily routines with no worries…[T]he Chevrolet Bolt EV, the redesigned Nissan Leaf, and the Tesla Model 3 will begin to strip away [range and other anxieties]…Electric cars are far simpler, mechanically, than internal combustion cars and should be more reliable. But it will take time for people to realize that they aren't going to freeze up like their smart phones…Seeing more electric cars on the road in large numbers will help ease those fears…Prices for the Bolt EV start at about $37,000 and it has batteries that can take it an estimated 238 miles…[The redesigned Nissan (NSANF) Leaf is also just entering production. For now, the Nissan Leaf has a range of only 150 miles but its starting price is] under $30,000…[And the $7,500 federal tax credit that manufacturers are counting on to help sell these electric cars] survived the Republican tax overhaul but the full credit is only good on the first 200,000 electric cars sold by each automaker. And GM, Nissan and Tesla are expected to hit that number some time next year…” click here for more
