Are electric cars worth it?
The great electric car debate rolls on. Everyone has his or her own opinion.
Reuters recently came out and accused General Motors of selling its Chevrolet Volt at a sticker price of $40,000, while the car reportedly cost anywhere from $56,000 to $89,000 to manufacture. According to this report, GM is offering a monthly financing deal for the Volt that is generally reserved for $15,000 automobiles. Reuters says that through August, 13,500 had sold, well behind the 40,000 units GM hoped to move in 2012.
