USA: Bay Area MTC hopes drivers will step into electric cars

Is there an electric car in your future? Bay Area transportation officials are hoping so. They’re staging events designed to get people plugged into the idea. ABC7 News takes a look at what it will cost you.

In the future, many of us maybe plugging in, not filling up our cars, but for now electric vehicles are a bit of a mystery. Even mechanics to work on them have questions.

Bay Area MTC wants to introduce drivers to electric cars

“The cars are so new, we don’t know what their longevity is going to be. It’s all speculative,” Carolyn Coquillette from Luscious Garage said.

Coquillette has opened her shop for this showcase of electric cars — BMW, Cadillac, fiats to name a few.

The Bay Area Transportation Commission wants more people to experience electric to reduce emissions on the road.

“Your cost of operating are about one-fifth of those of a gasoline-powered vehicle,” John Goodwin from the Metropolitan Transportation Commission said.
