Where Do I Plug In My Electric Car?

I'm not sure if an urban (low top speed, relatively low mileage per charge) electric car will catch on, but I couldn't buy one because I wouldn't have anywhere to plug it in.

I don't mean to make it all about me, but the point is that on one hand it's meant for urban dwellers like me, but on the other urban dwellers are less likely to have a garage w/AC outlet available to them.

...yes, people, I can run an extension cord out the window but that presumes that I can always magically get a parking spot right outside my house. And while there are people on my block who embrace the South Philly tradition of sticking an orange cone out and just claiming the spot as your own, it's not something I would do.
