A headline like the one above begs the question, "What's the catch?" Can you really get an electric car for free? Well, kinda.

Oklahoma-based, Drive Electric, sells neighborhood electric vehicles (NEVs - a.k.a. electric golf carts) made by Western Golf Cars and Zone Electric. The NEV retailer is currently offering the four-passenger Zone Electric NEV-48 EX for $6,496.53. Not free you say? Subtract the $6,496.53 federal tax credit for EVs from the purchase price and voila. You've got yourself a free EV.

Sure, this EV is only legal to drive on streets with speed limits of 35 mph or less, and of course, you'd better talk to your tax planner before you write the check. If you live in a community where the pace of life is slow enough to accommodate golf carts though, this may be the deal for you.

  1. Check out the solar recharging station by Cellstrom (Swiss) It uses a vanadium-lithium-ion battery for storage. Vanadium batteries are also going to be in all the new eCars out of China's largest eCar maker and China's richest man: BYD (backed with $230M from Warren Buffett) is building vanadium battery plants in China. Vanadium adds 5 times the power/weight ration to today's lithium car batteries.
    Stay on top of all news related to vanadium batteries by following my tweets @VanadiumJoe . This is a quiet revolution that will hit the major media in 2010. It's nice to be on the start of the next resource boom.

  4. Yeah I am interested in the tax credit as well. Any input?

  5. Got ours delivered last night! 7 months of waiting but WELL WORTH it and it was a credit on our 2009 taxes.

  6. Its a great deal...if you ever get the vehicle!! I ordered mine in December with an estimated shipping time of 16-18 weeks. I'm still waiting with NO definite date in sight. Repeated calls and emails have got me nowhere. Even my request for a refund was denied! I'm going to dispute the cc charge next. Btw the tax credit expired with the '09 tax yr. Not available in '10

  7. Continous excuses for delivery. I also ordered in December and now they say it will be October 31. Their add say they have plenty in stock....What a joke. CNN promoted this and it appears to be a scam!
