San Ramon Street Sighting - 1981 Bradley GT II Electric
Today, talk of so-called "range anxiety" is used to sway people between buying the Volt or the Leaf, because pure electrics typically have less range than cars with a gas engine. Considering the price of a new electric car, though, even with all the government tax incentives and such, it's hard to argue the economic benefits of paying a premium for a new car with minimal luggage space and the inability to drive very far between charges. The owner of these two Bradleys probably picked them both up for much less than the cost of one Nissan Leaf, and uses them both as commute vehicles. Take one to work one day and charge the other to use the next. If you have the space, why not?
