About eight years ago, I remember having FB debate with a few old HS classmates who claimed electric cars would be a passing fad, underpowered toys with limited range.
Over the past couple years, the fastest street cars were electric (ex. a Tesla 0-60 in under 4 seconds) and range that will soon meet or exceed gas cars. This is now beyond the reach of reactive RW politics. This is what it takes to compete worldwide. Obama got the mo started with pressing the higher MPG goals back with the auto industry bailout. The American car industry not only survived but is thriving.
This is the new technology base required to also ramp-up the self-driving cars, which will in turn create new services for deliveries of all kinds. Those who can’t drive or prefer not to will ultimately have transportation on-demand at a competitive cost to ownership.
