During one of the AFVI conference panels I went to, a woman from Australia asked the panel members (whose companies made a lot of the electric cars we report on) why their cars were so ugly. I'm just speaking frankly, she said, and continued that the only people who the cars would appeal to are "cashed up greenies." I like that phrase.
The electric car execs told her that their customers prefer the, ahem, standout looks of cars like the GEM. GEM's been in business for a while, so I suppose they should know. But what about that name? Does it mean anything to you? Do you think it applies to you? Do you think it describes most AutoblogGreen readers? Only one way to find out, I suppose.

So, are you?

Are you a cashed-up greenie?
