I'm really kind of blown away by the resistance to electrified cars in this country. Every time I see a Clarity advertisement on Youtube or Facebook I'll give it a thumbs-up and post a positive comment about the car. Then I start to read through the comment section. The lack of acceptance of PHEV or BEV cars is astounding. Many people make comments about using coal fired plants to generate electricity for our cars, stating that we are polluting more than gas vehicles. Another common comment is regarding range anxiety, not understanding that the Clarity does have an ICE also so that isn't a factor. Some quote that their gas powered car can go 500 miles on a tank, completely ignoring the fact that this has everything to do with gas tank size, not economy. The comments on those videos tend to be 90% negative. It just seems to be an uphill battle with consumers and dealerships who don't understand the benefits. I believe electricity will dominate the market in a few years. Of the total number of cars on the road BEV and PHEVs will still be small for a long time to come, but new sales will begin to climb in terms of percentage sold. This will partially be due to the manufacturers simply reducing the number of gas only vehicles while adding more and more electric models. It may take a very long time but eventually gas engines will be largely eliminated. One day far in the future young people will be amazed that we used to drive cars with so many moving parts, pistons, crank shafts, alternators, water pumps, valves, and the cars ran by controlled explosions. I believe many of those nay-sayers simply don't understand the wonderful simplicity of driving an electric car. I wish I could have eliminated the ICE in our Clarity to get rid of that technology of more than 100 years ago. But range anxiety, and long charge times just wouldn't work for me. There is a lot of promise that batteries with less than 15 minute charge times are coming in the next two to three years. When that happens the real shift will begin. Apparently we Clarity owners are pioneers.
