Greenies are shocked, SHOCKED that no one wants to pay $15,000 for a low speed golf cart with limited range. Are they out of touch or what?
The Bay Area’s independent electric car dealerships are in perilous shape, even as electric cars are being hailed as the next big thing by major auto manufacturers. Factors including a hurting economy, lower gas prices and, most notably, the cars’ own limitations.
Neither the Toronto-made Zenn or Santa Rosa-based Zap, the two electric cars most commonly sold in the Bay Area, go very far without a charge. The Zenn, which sells for around $15,000, can’t go more than 25 mph; the Zap, which costs around $10,000, 35 mph.
