Best Buy To Sell Green Vehicles Next To HDDs

Best Buy: it's the place you go when you need a new GPU, a new HDD, a new stick of RAM or a new notebook when time is tight and you can't bother to shop around. Soon, however, it'll be the go-to place for electric vehicles. You read right, electric vehicles.

As the big box retailer looks to broaden its horizons, it will soon begin offering "green vehicles" in select stores. In fact, it has already started the program up in a few locations, with 19 stores in west coast states (Oregon, Washington and California) offering up electric scooters, electric bicycles and Segway transporters. Things are set to get even more serious this summer with the introduction of the Brammo Enertia, an $11,995 electric motorcycle that can roll some 45 miles at up to 50mph on a single charge.



We know what you're thinking: "What is Best Buy thinking?" Truth be told, even the outfit's CEO isn't really sure, with Brian Dunn noting that he "isn't sure [how the sales of electric vehicles] will do." He does say that he likes the risk, however, and if it pays off, it could really catapult Best Buy into more than just a stop for new release DVDs and the occasional Christmas gift.

$11,995 to roll only 45 miles at up to 50 mph on that ugly thing? No thanks.

No doubt, they definitely could have broken out the style budget a bit more on that thing.

Please allow me to offer you a better Green Alternative to this ugly, expensive, electric-powered nightmare (and I do advise Best Buy's CEO Brian Dunn to drop this electric scooter fast)! If you go to your local Kawasaki dealer you can purchase a very cool Ninja 250R for less than the M.S.R.P. of only $3999. It comes with a warranty, gets a reported 61MPG, and will do about 104MPH top-speed OEM! Take a look at THIS video and tell me what you think!

Hey, I hope they start selling Apteras when they come out later this year. I could totally be tempted by that.

Yeah, but imagine how many more of these things they could sell if they had posed a hot chopper-devil biker chick on it!

Thats just plain ugly! When they make one like this I might go for that!

We have a few electric scooters available through bestbuy.com for anyone (not just the above markets) -- they don't have a lot of range however with the top-end one being able to travel 25 miles I believe it is? Speeds less than 30mph also....

I think it's interesting IF best buy can get something cosmetically appealing but with the current selection the idea will surely tank.
