Bruce: GAS PRICES ARE PRETTY LOW. MANUFACTURERS ARE PREPARE A NEW MODEL THAT CAN LAST 200 MILES BETWEEN CHARGES. IF YOU ARE THINKING OF GOING FROM GAS TO ELECTRIC THIS IS WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW. Reporter: HE IS ALL ABOUT EFFICIENCY. I THOUGHT OF THEM BEING ECONOMICAL GOLF CART AND THIS HAS GOTTEN IT OUT OF THAT RANGE. Reporter: HE DITCHED HIS LYBRIED AND WENT ALL ELECTRIC. IT IS A SIX FIGURE INVESTMENT AND JUSTIFIED IN PART BY LOWER MAINTENANCE COSTS. WITH A PURE ELECTRIC CAR YOU DON’T HAVE OIL CHANGES OR RAD YITOR FLUSHES, YOU HAVE TO CHECK YOUR ARE BRAKE PADS BUT THE MAINTENANCE IS SIGNIFICANTLY REDUCED. Reporter: MANY OF US CAN’T AFFORD A HIGH END VEHICLE THEY ARE PROMISING THOSE IN THE 30,000 RANGE IN THE COMING MONTHS. THESE WOULD BE 80 OR HUNDRED MILES BETWEEN CHARGING. IF YOU PULL THE PLUG ON ON THE GAS GUZZLER YOU NEED A PLUG AT HOME. YOU HAVE TO HAVE A CHARGER AT HOME. YOU REALLY WANT A 240 VOLT. Reporter: AND A PUBLIC CHARGING STATION THAT ARE MORE NUMEROUS. HE HASN’T CHANGED HIS HABITS MUCH BUT PLANS AHEAD FOR A LONGER TRIP. I WOULD BE HARD PRESSED TO GOING BECOME TO USING A GAS CARD. WE HAVEN’T HAD ANY NEED. Bruce: WILL ELECTRIC BILL WILL ROISHGSZ BUT CHECK WITH A UTILITY PROVIDER IF YOU USE OPTIC HOURS TO CHARGE.
