    Much better than the "pollute the present" campaign they ran... but never aired.

    That's funny ... shows a Bolt with starting sticker price over $37k then says electric cars are more affordable than ever. Does that %$& Bolt even have adaptive cruise control yet?

    27k after fed rebate and some states, but they're discounting the heck out of them. can be had for under 20k.

    While many shoppers don't look beyond purchase price, that is just part of a car's cost. Fuel savings and maintenance can tip the balance in favor of the BEV.

    I still haven't seen any sort of information about how much these will cost to the consumer that wants to charge.

    No. Goes by too quickly. I even tried slowing the video to a quarter speed and frame by frame.

    EDIT: The last left maroon car looks like Leaf. The last white one... Volt?

    The last one on the right may be a Clarity.
