Slow Electric Car Sales, Bay Area Dealerships Close

I recently noticed that a green car dealership I always pass on San Pablo Ave. in Berkeley is no longer open (it's a different car dealership). According to the Oakland Tribune, sales of electric cars are very slow right now...

"The Bay Area's independent electric car dealerships are in perilous shape, even as electric cars are being hailed as the next big thing by major auto manufacturers. Factors including a hurting economy, lower gas prices and, most notably, the cars' own limitations conspired to undo them."
