Ex-Sierra Club chair: U.S. EV makers should adopt cell-phone sales model

Makers of electric vehicles geared towards U.S. consumers would be wise to adopt a sales model similar to that of mobile phones, in which drivers would pay a set fee for unlimited electric charging, ex-Sierra Club Chairman Carl Pope wrote in an editorial for EV World.

Pope suggested that automakers should provide a six-year recharging contract to EV buyers who’d then pay $150 a month for recharging privileges. That would pencil out to about equal to refueling costs of a 25-mile-per-gallon car that’s driven 15,000 miles a year, but at a relative bargain of $3 a gallon, Pope wrote.
