Eh, the economics actually can work out. If you drive 30 miles to and from work, which is not unheard of where I'm at in SE Michigan, it would take about 10 years for the cost of gas to offset the cost of the car + charging. Assuming: Electric Focus, $0.08/kwh off peak charging compared to Gas Focus, 30 mpg with $4/gal gas and 15,000 miles a year of driving on both. That's not too unreasonable, especially when you consider all of the gas you didn't consume.

This charger won't even work on a Tesla... they had to go all Apple and make their own charger.
anyone really think the batteries will last 10 years?
