    Finally, people are starting to believe there will be OPTIONS when it comes to EVs very shortly. I consider this good news because $60K for a used RAV is a rip off.

    My friend (Caltech Physics alumni, Class of '77) called me recently. I told him about used Rav4 EVs going for $60K used. He told me he bought his new Rav4 EV for $40K many yrs ago, after he had to give up his GM EV1 (to the crusher).

    He tells me the range for his Rav4 EV is 100 miles. Wouldn't make it for his amateur astronomy jaunts to the outback (he uses his Honda Element for that). I need a vehicle for such activity, so maybe I'm looking at still playing with gas guzzlers. I recently declared my '82 Dodge 4x4 van non-operational, since I refuse to deal with $4/$5 per gallon gas. In a pinch, I can always rent a car for a "project".
