Many pundits were saying that once Chrysler and General Motors break the power of the dealerships as the major distribution network for selling vehicles, then we would see out-of-the-ordinary shops selling vehicles.
Well, apparently it is beginning to happen. Best Buy, a major retail chain that offers consumer electronics products, will soon be selling so-called green vehicles. This includes electric-powered scooters, bicycles, and Segways. One models is the Brammo Enertia, described as a futuristic electric motorcycle. It is said that the Brammo has a range of 45 miles and can travel at speeds of up to 50 miles an hour. It plugs into a standard wall outlet.
Not every store will be selling EVs. Right now only 19 locations, located in California, Oregon, and Washington, will be offering product.
