    Oh, I'm sure. The problem with people who claim them to be a niche car company is that they're clearly not making enough money sticking with their niche audience. They're moving into the mainstream market. For the 2012 Mini Countryman, the MSRP is $22,450. Not sure where you'd put that as far as costing too much.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    Isn't the Mini owned by BMW?

    Yes they are. BMW also owns Husqvarna Motorcycles and Volkswagen.

    So they really aren't a niche car company, division maybe.

    No, most factories are being designed to produce more then one vehicle at a time. The co owned plant by Mazda and Ford produced both the Mazda 6 and the Ford Mustang, two very different vehicles

    The Volt, Obama's car, well he won't ever get in one, let alone drive one, but he wants you to get in and drive it. Trouble is, no wants wants to get in it either.

    They stopped selling them because no one was buying them.

    The might get me points but


    Are you an idiot?

    Have you not read this thread which points out the Volt was designed before the automotive bailouts. Obama did not force GM to design it or to build it. They have not stopped sellling them, they have idled the factory for two reason. One, inventories of the malibu and volt are most likely high for what GM wants (that doesz not mean no one is buying them) and two, to retool the plant to allow for the assembly of another vehicle

    They sell the Volt for the customers to test.

    1. It is my understanding that even if recharged on coal-based electricity, electric cars have roughly the same carbon efficiency as the best hybrids.

    2. Find a cost-effective way to switch these electricity sources over to clean renewables, and the above problem is solved as well.

    you used honest words like hate and wanted.
    I honestly think many conservatives actually hate clean energy, or want dirty water or air. That is just the truth.
    I am not sure you can answer a question based on logic with emotion.
    Many people find it offensive to be told they have to change how they do things.
    Fixed it for you.

    If you can't see that the perception that conservatives hate green energy is alive and well, then we will probably be unable to debate here.
