MW if you saw his recharge plug you would understand
I guess in this day and age it is probably cheaper to charge the way he does from his home. Have you seen any of the Mitsibishi Cars that are 100% electric/no gas at all so if your batteries die the lots of luck until you get charged up again. They even charge when braking, it would pay them to put a solar panel on the roof to assist in keeping them charged when sitting around, they started in the electric car system in 1994 and only now have a car that is small and packs 4 people looks about the size of a Toyota Yaris 4dr sedan, back seat lays flat for more storage room. They also built for the American Market but the big problem in Canada and the USA is there are no charging Stations around to readily charge them but it only takes 1 hour for them to charge and they get about 125 miles per charge. They were being built for Cailifornia because of the smog problems there, but I here the price is pretty rough as yet. They are going to have to build thousands of them and sell them for similar prices of gasoline cars and trucks etc. or they will not be able to Market them.
They also said that Gasoline and Diesel engines will be around for many more years that these electric cars were basically commuter cars for large city areas, somewhere one can easily charge them. I'm sure the minute they start to sell them the charging stations will be installed in all kinds of parking garages, gas stations, shopping malls, your homes, in rest stops, you will see them popping up all over and you will not be able to use them unless you have a special code or credit card that is coded with your code.
