Come Hang with sustainablog to Discuss the Prices of Electric Vehicles
I’m not a car guy by any stretch, but I still love the idea of a hybrid or fully electric car parked in my garage… until I see the sticker prices. Yes, I’m dedicated to keeping my environmental footprint in check, but the current prices of vehicles like the Volt, Prius, and LEAF will keep me in gas-powered cars for the foreseeable future.
Or will they? Apparently, the makers of two of the most well-known EV models – Nissan and GM – are considering price reductions. Could that change the market for hybrids and EVs? Could they create situations where EV drivers are actually saving money even though they’ve bought a more expensive car? This week at Hangin’ with sustainablog, we’ll toss those questions and more at Zachary Shahan, site director at Cleantechnica (and total electric vehicle gearhead). Got questions or thoughts about what reduced prices on the Volt and LEAF might do for the EV market? Then join us…
The party starts at 10am Central on Friday, January 25. Join us for the live broadcast – either as a participant or a viewer – or catch up later with video and/or audio recordings.
