On Monday and Tuesday there was an electric vehicle expo at Justin Herman Plaza in San Francisco - right next to our One Market office. I stopped by at lunch on Tuesday.
It was funny to see that these vehicles had stickers with estimated electricity costs for the year. Some of the modest cars had values like $600 whereas the sports cars had numbers like $1,900. So even in a world devoid of gas guzzlers like the muscle cars of the 1970's, there is still a dichotomy of energy use on types of electric cars. Who would have thunk it? The prices of the cars themselves ranged from $32,500 to $112,500 with the estimated cost of operation being proportional.
Electricity is alive in the lab.
