While we were walking the streets of Franklin before the Jazz Festival the other night, we saw this electric car parked on Main Street. A two-seater, it has a bit of room behind the seats for packages and other stuff. The car was parked, but we saw the cord rolled up in the back, and where the gas cap would normally be (toward the back on the passenger side), we saw a cap that we assume was where one would plug in the cord to power up the car.
I don't remember the cost. . . . I think it was about $17,000. What I do remember is that the sunroof on this car ran about $1200 extra.

Personal observation: We think you could probably park this car perpendicular to the curb and still be within the parking stripes. We also think you could park two of these cars comfortably in one space the regular way.
So, would you drive an electric car?
