I came across this video on CNN today. It's an interview with a Volt owner discussing his car and how he uses it. Everything he says is equally true of the Karma (except the price :)) and I think it's the most articulate explanation of the value proposition and desireability of range extended EVs I've seen yet:

Confessions of a Volt Owner

I can't figure out how to embed the video (it's not Youtube or one of the other easy ones) so you'll have to click.

Great piece, nice to have real owner feedback on EVs in a speculation-saturated internet environment...

Side note, couldn't help but notice his ring - he's an MIT alum.

Yea, I wish I could have an outlet at work and I could push my 20+ mile commute one-way to an all electric trip. That would be an interesting news article, "How to broach the subject of asking your employer for use of an outlet to charge your personal car at work." I would even be willing to pay for the electricity, considering I am a solider and would not feel great about having the taxpayers pay for my electricity. Not that I feel bad about claiming my tax credit, because anyone that buys the car can get that. Not everyone works for the government. Of course, the only way I coud pay for it would be for the Army to put in ChargePoints which would be at a cost to taxpayers, but if they could charge a bit more than the cost of electricity, they could make it back, eventually.
