    Geeks, Greens, Gloaters and Grazers

    The article about the Coda, discussed elsewhere, quotes Thomas Hausch, Coda's Senior Vice President, as saying that “the EV market is divided roughly into four consumer segments” geeks, greens, gloaters and grazers. Geeks are early adopters who love electric vehicle technology, while greens are environmentally aware consumers who want to reduce their carbon footprint. Gloaters are vehicle enthusiasts who care a lot about design, and grazers are cost-conscious people who count every penny spent on gas, smog checks and oil changes, costs that the Coda comes without.” (I am probably in the “grazer” camp.) I thought those descriptions of the EV market were kind of funny.

    Which one are you (or do you think it is all BS)?

    Definitely the geek camp for me
    maybe a little bit of the greens in there too... I guess the environments cool and all...

    I was kind of thinking that I might fit into the Geezer category.
