    Consumers won’t want electric cars because of reduced range


    Electric cars have a range far greater than the average distance driven per day

    According to the Federal Highway Administration's 2009 National Household Travel Survey, the average driver travels 29 miles per day and the average vehicle trip length is 9.7 miles. Meanwhile, the EPA estimates that the all-electric Nissan Leaf’s range is about 73 miles and that Mitsubishi’s electric vehicle has a range of 62 miles. Furthermore, plug-in hybrids like the Chevy Volt offer the option of running on gas for longer trips.
