lol, yeah , good one.. I guess it goes faster if you charge on a 240v outlet ;p

But for what I have heard from actual test drives of electrical cars is that you do not want to accelerate to high speeds if you want to keep your battery life longer... I guess the same concept applies to gas consumption, right ?

I bought the 2012 Focus 5-door SEL with Ecoboost technology last fall 2011, I am satisfied with fuel economy and acceleration Power balance. I t took me a while to get adapted to the automatic speed shifting driving at speeds between 0 and 35km , now I know and got used.

If I had waited some months I am sure this is the car I had chosen, I wonder how the speed shifting goes on this all electrical cars. Has anyone tried an electrical car ?
