I'd be pleased to have an all electric vehicle in our garage, just to cut consumption of foreign oil, among other good reasons. With a 50+ mile range, it would be the around town car, with the guzzler for travel. I suspect many surburban families could do the same.
But that electric vehicle is gonna have to be TALL enough that I can see through the windshields of most vehicles in front of me. Driving in multi-lane traffic is tough, & I want to be able to see as far ahead as possible. The fool directly in front of me is on the phone, or applying their face. They aren't paying attention to the car in front of them, but I am if I can see it!
I certainly want that ability in any car I buy in the future - electric or gas.
exactly right..I have a Ford F150 that sits high enough I can see way down the road (unless I’m behind an 18 wheeler) and if I see a problem 200 yards ahead, I’m on the brake, or changing lanes or both before the car in front of me has started to react. This comes in especially handy when I’m hauling my 6500 lb. travel trailer and NEED extra room to avoid problems..
I won’t get into a car when all I can see out of the windshield is the rear bumper of the car in front of me..
My husband is 6 foot 5. I haven’t seen a “green” car yet that he could get into.
