I thought the same. A friend tells me his electric car tows fine but it eats his range up, and it's not like he can "refill" as quickly as his truck. so he doesn't like it. of course, this is anecdotal and I don't have a source, and I would really prefer something more reliable that I can check, so there is that. I sure would love to see one, especially priced well enough for us po' folk!
