Has VW solved the electric car debate? Most people tell you they avoid all-electric cars because of price, overall range, and long charge times. Volkswagen says they have a new car coming out in 2018 that’s 100% electric. It will cost less than a gas-powered model, have a 300 mile range, and will charge in 15 minutes. Keep in mind that this company lied about its latest diesel engines, so caveat emptor.
