More electric car models are available than ever before.  Between environmental concerns and gas prices, you might think they'd be more popular.

But electric cars represent less than 1 percent of vehicles on the road.

What keeps you from buying one? Is it price? Worry that you'll be stranded because battery range isn't far enough and there aren't enough recharging stations available?

Please vote and leave a comment.   Results and a selection of comments will appear in next Sunday's business section.
