    Tough Going for New Plug-ins for Govt Motors

    GAO report appears to indicate it will be a long haul before they gop mainstream even in the govt.

    Plug-in electric vehicles pose challenges for feds (6/10/09) -- www.GovernmentExecutive.com

    In a new report, GAO found that the likely high cost of those vehicles and insufficient infrastructure for recharging them are barriers to widespread adoption, at least initially. In addition, many of the laws governing federal energy use and vehicle acquisition hold contradictory goals that will make it difficult for agencies to comply.

    So, let me see if I get this. The government has been shoving these programs down the throats of auto manufacturers, and now that they are managing one, it's occured to them that this is a very expensive endeavor?

    It's like the UAW being handed controlling interest of Chrysler and seeing how backwards the ledger is because of their own demands, then deciding announcing that they want to cash in those shares ASAP.
