USA: Electric-vehicle makers try to entice Hawaii’s car buyers

With gas prices topping $4.30 a gallon, electric-vehicle makers and car-charging station operators are trying to entice people into checking out automobiles such as the Mitsubishi i-MiEV, Nissan Leaf, Chevrolet Volt and other cars that require zero or little gas.

They are doing that this Saturday by offering free test drives at the Laie Shopping Center along with a chance to register for free charging until 2013 at Better Place stations around Hawaii. The event will run from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. and its sponsors include Hawaiian Electric Co. , Better Place, Cutter Mitsubishi, and other businesses.

Power prices are going up as well, so freebies to plug in and power up your electric car are a good deal considering it takes hours to charge electric vehicles — unless you want to shell out money for your own charging station.
