I know there are some libertarians on here - I'd especially like to know what you think of this.
I think, personally, it's hogwash. Yes, electric vehicles depreciate farther after 3 years, but (when I finally get one) I plan on keeping my 2016 for far longer than three years. What's also interesting to me is he talks a lot about how much it will be to replace the cost of the batteries in these cars, but if my google-fu is correct, replacing a 2001 battery in a Prius is around $3,000 as of 2012. Are Volt (and Leaf) batteries so drastically different, they'd cost astronomically more?
I'm curious to hear y'alls take on it.
