Batchelor radio show ~ top ten reasons to buy an EV

What are the reasons to buy an electrified vehicle and what are the reasons not to buy electric vehicles? John Batchelor and Lou Ann Hammond go through the top ten reasons you would buy a plug-in hybrid or battery electric vehicle.

There are so many incentives, including utility companies giving better electric rates at night. For example, the Chevy Bolt is charged between 11pm – 7am for 8 hrs at a cost of about $7.20 giving a driving range of 200 miles. Compare that to a car that gets 25 mpg at about $3.50 per gallon. Those same 200 miles for a gas car cost $28.
