Sure, many people can buy an electric car for commuter duty and keep a gasoline or diesel for long-distance drives, but that’ll represent only a small (no more than 10%) market segment. A very fuel efficient gas-powered vehicle such as a Prius will not cost much more to operate than one of these babies and if you have a Prius, you don’t NEED another vehicle for long-distance driving.

What this will do is make a Chevy Volt prematurely obsolete. Maybe.

If it could somehow have import tax of 20% like the Better Place instead of 89% that would make a big difference but import tax rate is not related to notions of green-ness, as far as I can tell it’s related to whether some part of the car can be determined to be made in Israel (which is intellectually the case for the BP car).
