POLL Would you buy an Electric Car
With fuel only getting more expensive, unless you?ve won
Free Fuel For a Year with us! Mark Bailey the chairman at Trade Centre Wales has been curious about how many of us would prefer an electric car to a fuel alternative.
Now of course Electric Cars have improved dramatically over the past few years and after conducting a survey using the poll on our website we have found that only 27% of the people who entered would buy an Electric Vehicle!
According to Eco Friend the Nissan Leaf is Truly a car to watch out for in the future, the Nissan Leaf (also formatted “LEAF” as a acronym for Leading, Environmentally friendly, Affordable, Family car) is a five-door mid-size hatchback electric car
produced by Japanese automaker Nissan and was introduced in Japan and the U.S. in December 2010. Incorporated with a 80 kW (110 hp) synchronous motor, the car is touted to have an extended range of 160 kilometers (100 mi) on the EPA city driving cycle, and a convenient top speed of over 150 km/h (93 mph) with 0-60 acceleration in 9.9 secs. Moreover, Nissan could very well become the first automaker to have 10,000 all-electric vehicles in the U.S. by the end of 2011. Fervently epitomizing the ‘green’ way of life, LEAF has already won several accolades including the 2011 World Car of the Year, and ranks as the most efficient EPA certified vehicle for all fuels ever.
What are your thoughts? do you see this as a reasonable sum for the public wanting Electric Motors? Should Used Car Supermarkets such as ourselves be doing more to stock a vast selection of Electric Vehicles?
We try to stock as many vehicles as possible here at Trade Centre Wales and you can always check out our Auto Trader site for a small selection of what we stock here at Trade Centre Wales
Do you have an Electric Car? If so how?s it running? How is the battery life (If you have had it more than a year or so) have you noticed a long term decrease in life?
