A major impediment to wide acceptance of electric vehicles even on the
part of people who use their cars almost exclusively for commuting is the
inability to use their electric vehicles for occasional extended trips. In an
attempt to make purchasing electric vehicles more attractive to
coomuters, one electric vehilcle producer is planning to offer customers
three days free rental of a conventional car for every 1,000 miles that
they drive their electric vehicle.
Which of the following, if thrue, most theatens the plan's prospects for
A. Many electric vehicles that are used for commercial purposes are not
needed for extended trips.
B. Because a majority of commuters drive at least 100 miles per week,
the cost of the producer of making good the offer would add considerably
to the already high price of electric vehicles.
C. The relatively long time it takes to recharge the battery of an electric
vehicle can easily be fitted into the regular patterns of car use characteristic of commuters.
D. Although electric vehicles are essentially emmission- free in actual
use, generating the electricity necessary for charging an electric vehicle's
battery can burden the environment.
E. Some family vehicles are used primarily not for commuting but for
making short local trips, such as to do errands.
