Electric cars

If I was still commuting to Syracuse every day, I think I would definitely look at buying an electric vehicle. Something like a Nissan Leaf that could get 100 miles on a charge. That’s plenty of miles to get me to downtown Syracuse and back. I could recharge the car in my garage overnight and I wouldn’t have to worry about electric charging stations.

And I think for most people who commute they could do the same. Electric cars really could be a viable option right now for at least one of your cars, until charging stations become more plentiful.

The City of Boston is leading the way on getting electric charging stations set up. They have launched an EVboston program to make electric vehicles an accessible option for residents and visitors.

“Three parking spaces on Cambridge Street in front of City Hall Plaza have been outfitted with charging stations and have been set aside for the exclusive use of electric car owners who need to recharge vehicle batteries.  The project is a year-long pilot to study the use and durability of the charging units and to inform future implementation plans for electric vehicle stations around the city.”
