The electric company sent me an email about electric cars. They compared a midsized car vs an econobox electric. It didn't break even until 2 years... Then I looked closer and found that they had used a nearly base model electric price, vs a much more specced out midsized car. The price difference was about $9500 over the standard price on the midsized car, for a total difference of $12000 instead of $3000. Even their 5-year projection doesn't show you saving that much with the electric.
