Good one MOKE. This demonstrates how the public is manipulated by the "news" media. By listening to our "news" sources one would believe that people in the millions are waiting breathlessly for electric vehicles. Yet the things sit and gather dust in reality.

Hilarious!

Top Gear - Toyota Prius

Couldn't find the full episode, though.

Well, then I'll just pull out my Devilbiss 7.5 Kw generator and wake the neighborhood while it runs all night charging my electro-car.

Wait. What?
