    Reads like Bob was a great visionary.
    Failure of the CitiCar appears to be once more, people are not willing to take something for a car which has less features.

    Agree. Always found it amazing that cars like the Prius were cheap no fills cars when they came out. The people who are early adopters generally are more affluent, especially since new technology generally comes at a premium. So then the Prius slowly added leather, sunroofs etc in response to demand. This is where Tesla really got it right--make it better than a gas car as Elon says.
