Going green has become popular. For those whom truly want to help the environment, electric cars are most certainly the way. Also to help the economy, hybrid and electric cars are most certainly the way. You get tax and parking incentives which save you time, parking and money spending. The biggest green impact to me about going green is the new green backs it produces as each car sold helps boost the US GDP.
Electric car or hybrid cars purchase help the GDP as new green car sales helps to employ Americans creating something American made. Companies like THINK which just delivered the first American made Lithium-ion Batteries to the state of Indiana speaks to the soul of American ingenuity. The fact that you can save the environment while helping new American companies grow with Green Job’s is certainly a plus.
Hybrid and Electric Vehicle incentive 5 : Marketing
I’ve driven a smart car. Its actually fun to drive. Frightening at first because you think that any mid sized vehicle that comes near you might swallow you up like a feeder fish. Fact is, when in a smart car you can forget how small it is when driving it. You save on gas and get places quickly as you bob and weave throughout traffic. Then when you stop comes the perks.
Everyone stares. From the high end luxury cars to old clunkers. Everyone looks at the smart car and just stares. Some people have the nerve to say something. Most people just stare. When you pull over and park, it can and will be a conversation piece. People ask “how does a 6’3 250 pound man fit in a car that small?”. My answer, “Very easily”. People want to know what the gas millage. People want to know the cost. People have a need to know more about the car. You have a captive audience looking in your direction. With a wrapped car or promotional materials, you can use the cars celebrity to promote your product.
Big picture, electric vehicles and hybrid cars are worth the purchase In Maryland in 2010.
