When I bought my previous car in 1998 I hoped to get into a ZEV but in 2005 that wasn't possible so I am now on target to relinquish it in 2012 and actually step into a ZEV. It's been my dream for a long time. Presently I'm on the waiting list for a Tesla Model S. We'll see what the landscape is like in 2012.
I will be looking for a car around october 2011, when I get my license.
