Electric cars displayed at Vancouver show

The latest and greatest in electric vehicle technology was on display at Electrafest in Vancouver this weekend.

“People who say, ‘I have to have the roar and the thunder of the V8′ have never driven an electric car,’ said Jerry Kroll, an e-car enthusiast who drives a Fisker, worth over $100,000.

Electric vehicles come with lofty promises of being fast, safe and as green as possible, but they also come with high prices.

The Tesla costs $77,000, while more modest models from Nissan and Chevy are priced around $40,000.

The B.C. government offers a $5,000 cash incentive to buy electric cars, but only 106 people have taken up the offer so far. Some $1.7 million still remains in the Clean Energy Vehicle program fund.
