I have great sympathy for all those car dealers who are looking at forecourts full of unwanted cars. Well here is an idea for you. Get a dealership for electric cars and learn how to service them and offer this package: You buy an electric car from us and you get free membership of our car pool. Anytime you want a larger car just park your electric car here and we'll put it on charge for you and you can pay by the mile (sorry, kilometer) from a choice of any of this range of cars. If the car pool gets popular, you can offer to take cars in part exchange if they are suitable for the pool, and offer the pool service to others, who can also choose to take an Electric car from the pool if it suits their needs.
Then you can start offering a special electricity tariff especially suited to electric car users who will be charging overnight and get a commission on use from your supplier of choice.
Then you can offer electric motorscooters and motorbikes and vars and buses.....
I have at least two customers for you already if you are based in West Cork.
And just in case you thought electric cars all looked like motorised shopping trolleys:
Japanese prototype that does 0-62 in 4 secs and top speed of 230mph!
And of course the Tesla:
