    Are you suggesting that they should be the target of future electric vehicle developments or are we misunderstanding each other?
    I'm saying they could be the niche market for gasoline or diesel.
    OU... OH YEAH!!!!

    It's not, but it is...if that makes sense. Has nothing to do with the technology and everything to do with the Politics. Even though the technology is there, politics have stunted many, many growth opportunities.

    Just a for instance: Bosch lost between $1-$2B in their own internal solar division...and their solar division has been relevant for roughly 3 years. You stunt the end product growth, you also curb technological breakthroughs in production products (furnaces, tracking devices, batteries, thin-film, diamond cutters, to name a few).
