Those vehicles are meant for a completely different driving environment, roads, distances, spaces, urban design than the common US average.
Other than in very few overpopulated cities like NY, those vehicles are useless.

Treehughers and the green police, want to shove it down everyones throat, without a single once of consideration or common sense.
Nothing more than a "feel good" thought, but we all know.."the road to hell is paved with good intentions"
But as the brilliant economist Milton Friedman once said, “One of the great mistakes is to judge policies and programs by their intentions rather than their results."
