Comments: EV Update for Sept. 14, 2011

At least Mr. Obama will have established yet another first: instead of the government buying cheap, stripped down vehicles, it will be buying expensive vehicles that work poorly, donít deliver more than a fraction of the mileage promised, cost two arms and two legs to repair, and have the trade-in value of a used hamburger.

Mutatis mutandis that's also a description of most Gummint workers. Given Obama's background, he's using well-established standards. He doesn't KNOW any better.

I've heard that several large companies who donated to Obama are going to buy quantities for their fleets. I wonder if they'll follow through. Particularly publicly-held companies since their CEOs have a legal fidicary duty to the stockholders to make decisions in the best financial interest of the company. I don't see how these would make any more financial sense as a fleet vehicle for corporation than as a family vehicle.
