Electric cars are and will continue to be losers.
Batteries power to weight ratio is years form being solved.
Once that hurdle is gone, the power grid needs to be rebuilt to
provide charging. I don't know how many cars there are in the USA,
but we will not charge them all with windmills and solar power.
I'd rather have a modern Stanley Steamer.
