I wish just one of these major manufacturers would just take one of their existing least expensive, simple cars and add a single fwd electric motor and a medium size Li-ion battery to get the $7500 tax credit, and sell it for a before credits msrp of $19,999. Keep it simple stupid.

Just look at say the Prius C. Drop the ice and transmission/transaxle, add a better electic motor, and quadruple the battery. It already is loaded with electric features and low current draw components, good aero, and is a bit over $21,000 msrp.
