    Interesting video. But the most interesting part was to discover that there was not a single mention of Tesla. Teslas are by far and by any measure the absolute leaders in EV technology and sales world-wide, not to mention the ones with the best performance and range.

      While Tesla is a leader in EVs, it did not participate in the Chicago Auto Show this year. This story highlighted EVs featured at this year’s show. We will continue to feature Teslas in the future as we have in previous Green View stories. Stay tuned!

    I like that the car manufacturers are getting better with electric vehicles. They have a long way since I got my 2005 GEM!

    Very interesting how quickly electric cars have come up to use. It’s exciting, yet I do t like the trucks and SUV’s as well as a basic smaller car.
    I’m hoping electric cars will help heal our earth!!!! Thank you!

    Nice to see lots of manufacturers getting on board. Ranges are better but still limiting and charging infrastructure is not there. I love my volt which I think is a nice car for the moment for a longer range driving for a one car Family.

    Clear info on the topics I wanted: range and recharging. However, it doesn’t cover these from a consumer perspective, just the manufacturer’s reps talking. It would be nice to get an unbiased review of the products offered.

    Love it. I bought a EV last year to become part of the solution to climate change and this gives me hope. How can you turn down such beautiful, graceful and powerful vehicles. I look forward to an electric future as these new offerings and there new owners join me on the road. GO EV!!

    The video should acknowledge Tesla for opening up the market. It would also have been nice to have a link to a map of all the available charging stations in and around Madison

    We have loved our two electric vehicles and definitely won’t buy anything other than electric from here on out.

    What a fun and exciting video. It is great to watch the many new advancements in electric car technology. We love our LEAF and feel better about driving it than a gas car and now we know there are lots more options available and more places to charge it.

    Super cool. Hope the next time we need to replace a vehicle we can get an electric.

    If I get an EV for my home, I would like to look at adding a 220 plug in for my garage. Does MG&E have incentives for installed an EV charger for home?

    In any other time before now, with fuel prices so low, EV’s wouldn’t stand a chance. I don’t think that will happen this time around. Other world-wide nations require manufacturers to produce these cars so they have to respond. My next car will be an EV. With the build-out of renewable energy, these will be the only type vehicle that can actually get more efficient over time!

    I’m convinced that electric is the way to go. Now if I can just convince my husband…

    I love my Prius. I want to go electric but what I am seeing is not going to accomodate my wheelchair. Even in the Prius it is hard.

    I am happy to see so many options to purchase an electric car. I hope to
    be able to afford one for my next car.

    Thanks for keeping MG&E customers up to date on the latest innovations in the electric car industry.

    Add you’ll never again pump gas, your servicing costs plunge, cost per mile is a fraction of what you’re used to, and it’s a quiet, quiet cabin but for the wind you barely hear. And as a five year owner of an EV I’ve found only the tires wear out.

    I liked that they addressed one of the big concerns – range. I’m looking forward to an affordable EV. I hope my next vehicle will be one. It’s a good reason to add solar to my house

    I have been waiting for this time….larger electric cars, SUVs and trucks are the future. Another year and I will trade in my hybrid for electric. My concern is reliability and cost of maintenance.

    Those new EVs and more importantly those plug-in hybrids can’t come out fast enough!

    This was a fun video. I am considering an EV for my next vehicle. I don’t know how soon since my 2005 Prius is still humming along. It would have been nice to have a link to the web address listed at the end of the video.
