Well Rob, only the 2017 Smart has a chance to be under $30K after you add all the other dealer prep and title costs. To be sure, the costs for EV's might drop for a while, if nothing else, to put competition out of business. Comes down to how deep the manufacturers pockets are. You also can't count on tax credits being available. The other thing is the cost of insurance as that adds to the cost of operation too. Oh, and how much will a home charger cost, installed (I know you and I could install them but the typical person can't.) If the Elio were made electric and got at least 150 miles per charge, I would be interested for about $15K.
