Plug-in cars: The Fisker Karma costs over $100,000 and consumer reports couldn’t even complete their test before it broke down. They had to call a wrecker and haul it off.
WASHINGTON – Terry McAuliffe is in the car business.
The former Virginia Democratic gubernatorial hopeful recently paid $20 million for Hong Kong-based EuAuto Technology, which builds an electric vehicle called the MyCar. The vehicle is for people who need wheels to run errands or tool around the neighborhood.
This baby car will cost between $13,00 and $16,000 and is supposed to travel 70 miles at 45 MPH on a charge. Haha. That’s what they say…..
Terry McAuliffe, a former Virginia Democratic gubernatorial hopeful, is the new owner of a Hong Kong firm that makes the electric MyCar, which can travel 70 miles on a single charge.
I saw Terry McAuliffe this morning bragging about this joke of a car.
It is not designed for the highway but to run errands. I can see why. Picture it on an interstate highway with a passing semi truck. It would be blown off the road. I think it’s just a little bigger than a golf cart.
It’s not like we don’t have perfectly fine automobiles – beautiful cars that work just fine. If you want a golf cart, you can just buy one at about $3,000 to $4,000.
