Not that long ago, electric vehicle (EV) sales and prospects were up
. Now, though, things are not so hot
. The latest bit of bad news can be found in DailyTech
, which details a drop in American EV sales across the board. Dealerships clammed up when DailyTech called, and when DT did get an answer, they found a dealer that sold two EVs in three months and another that sells one or two a month. Not exactly inspiring numbers, but not exactly surprising, either. It's hard enough to get people to buy "normal" vehicles these days; asking them to make the jump to a technology they're unfamiliar with - and to companies they have probably never heard of if they're not AutoblogGreen regulars - is apparently too much to expect. Throw in the cliff dive of gas prices since the summer and you've got an easy-to-understand reason for the drop. Have you got a solution?
