    Congrats to Boston Power. I had an opportunity to tour their R&D offices with my som last year. I was impressed with their concern for the enviornment as well as their technology.

    Yeah, it’s a crossover SUV, and it’s not the first to run on electric power. Toyota used to offer an electric version of the RAV4 in some states, and many people have converted their own personal cars to run on electric power. Old VW Squarebacks are particularly popular for that.

    Yeah i know its a crossover suv, but the article states that they teamed up with saab to produce a electric station wagon, a ford escape is neither a saab or a wagon, but congrats to boston power for further advancing the electric car technology

    The price of the car is reasonable but the Extension cord costs a fortune !!!!

    I didn’t know SAAB started selling Ford Escapes. Come to think of it, I not sure SAAB is selling SAABs anymore. With only about 6,000 cars sold last year that’s about the best going out of business plan I’ve seen in a long time.
