If we had flat-earthers like you in charge, we'd still be using horse and buggies to get around.

If we had more trolls like you on Topix every one would be called St. Paul Slewage.
I thought you were AGAINST welfare for the rich, what a hypocrite!!!!

An electrician friend tells me his company bid on a charging station install and it came to $35,000.

So is one (1) charging station able to charge up ONE electric car?

So IF every electric car needs one (1)$35,000 charging station doesn't that cost get added to the cost of an electric car?

So if a Volt costs $37,000 and add in the cost of a charging station $35,000 to actual cost of an electric car is (drum roll)$82,000.

WOW the cost of this Volt thing sure go expensive.

Not to mention the BILLIONS Obama infused into Government Motors to keep it from going broke and making the wonderful Volt.

Of course the wonderful Volt has had such steller sales that production of the Volt has been shut down for lack of demand. According to this story GM loses $49,000 on each Volt it makes.

ONLY in a Socialist country could this go on and on.....

In a Capitalist country supply is determined by demand, in this case the Volt would not have been produced at all.

Obama KRAP!!

In behind-closed-door shenanigans the Minneapolis City Council decided to install 25 electric car charging stations around the city. With no taxpayer input and even though electric car sales have fallen below expectations, the council took it upon themselves to spend more money we don't have.
Is this really the responsibility of government? If there is a demand for this service wouldn't the private sector step in? And, with the high price of hybrid cars isn't this just welfare for the rich?
These arrogant "public servants" need to go!
I don't think this is the responsibility of government but I would ask the question, do they have to pay for these via a credit/debit card or do the taxpayers pick up the tab for the electricity too?

Many questions to be answered:

Who gets first dibs on the chargers, with MILLIONS of commuters how does Government pick the winners?

Is the electric vehicle like mass transit where Government will be picking up the rediculas cost of the krap?

At what point do the taxpayers being RIPPED OFF for all this hyper expensive "Green" junk REVOLT,(no pun intended)?

I'd say we have already revolted by boycotting Obama/GM products.

Gee I always wanted to charge my car like a cell phone before I can drive home from work.....

How much does the Volt cost again?

Well, lookie, lookie.

We found another topix Mr. Schmahl's pea-brain has wrapped itself around. You can always tell - he posts with a bunch of his different personas.

Schamhl would have us riding horse and buggies to get to work and reading by whale oil light at night - he is the ultimate anti-progress flat-earther.

Fortunately the esteemed Mr. Schmahl is getting up there in years, and like Archie before him, his reactionary voice will soon cease to echo upon deaf ears.

Flat-earther? Hmmm...that term has been used by a troll using several different "names". Now that wouldn't be you would it, troll?

Why don't you tell us which part of North St. Paul you live in? You're so very interested in what Mr. Schmahl is doing, it must certainly affect you personally.

I remember Archie. Like Mr. Schmahl, Arch espoused a lot of ideas that went against what I believe in, but I hold dear the respectful dialog nonetheless. I pity you, Slew, for as long as you shut out any opposing ideas you will learn nothing new. And that, my friend, makes you as relevant as the horse and buggies you bring up.

In case anyone is interested, here is a link to the story:

http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/story/19508385...

As they are currently designed, electric vehicles are too costly and not very practical for most people. It's the batteries that are the issue. They are too bulky, don't stay charged long enough, are expensive to replace and are an environmental hazard in terms of disposal. In large metro areas, a 50 mile range is not very practical.

WOW the cost of this Volt thing sure go expensive.
So, if we are losing $50,000 dollars on each Volt what is the real cost to the taxpayer?
