Wow, another waste of money. 240 volt running all the time is going to give you a nice electric bill.

Not to mention the fact that you can't use that as your only car. You can't use it to go on a long trip. In my book, the greenest car is a old car that'* well maintained, There is no reason at all why a car can't last 20 years or more. But people toss a car after only 5 years. Take in account how much energy is needed to make everyone a new car every few years.
