National Plug-In Day 9/23/2012

I drove the Leaf to San Diego's official electric car celebration on Sunday.  More than seventy electric car owners were there.  Free lunch!  Lots of talk about high-voltage Level 3 charging stations, which are starting to roll out in California.  Those make long-distance trips more practical; a Nissan Leaf could theoretically charge from empty to 80% in 20 minutes!

Unusual to see a parking lot full of non-guzzlers.  Two owners of the brand-new Tesla sedan showed off their beautiful cars:

This one had a sticker price of over $108,000.  YIKES!  If you can afford that, I guess the federal and state incentives don't matter very much.
