Spend a few days in southern California and it isn’t the ample number of classic VW Beetles rattling about that stand out. It’s the number of electric cars that really gets your attention.
The Prius hybrid already was pretty-much the state car, flashing its coveted HOV lane sticker, but now plug-in electric vehicles are flourishing.
Nissan Leafs, Chevy Volts and Tesla’s Model S are everywhere. You even catch a glimpse of the Honda Fit EV, Cadillac ELR, Smart Electric Drives and Fiat 500e’s.
