Will historians mark post-Katrina and the resulting high gas prices the return of the electric car? That may be what EV supporters are hoping. As gas prices continue to remain high and "Who Killed the Electric Car?" still on many people's 'Must See' list, supporters are parking their EVs in front or near theaters to answer questions and pass out flyers to continue sparks of interest from the public.
They continue to have a tough sell, though. Many consumers want the ability to drive 300 miles even if they don't normally make such distances. EV supporters are placing their hopes on plug-in hybrids as a stop-gap measure to satisfy such criticism. Regardless, activists insist that the electric vehicle is here to stay and ready for the mainstream.
