This is a good thing. EVs make more sense in fleets where the cost of fast chargers can be spread out across many vehicles that never go more than a set distance. They will probably pay for themselves eventually on a larger scale.

Oh yeah...they will be standing in line to buy this car. I just hope I don't get stuck on the road behind the dope that bought one.

And for Domino's? New slogan time: Your pizza in 30 Days or less or it's Free.

It always looks like the deliver guys use their own cars. What are the franchise owners going to do with the cars that they might order.

A price of $15,000 to $20,000, a range of 115 miles, and a top speed of 25 miles per hour is bad for a pizza delivery vehicle.
