some pretty length and expensive illusions those are...
Does the write calls the Tesla Roadster an "E-mirage"????
The "Anti-Electric" arguments are more like "Anti-Electric myths".
Assuming Roadster-priced electric cars, yes they are unmarketable to the majority of people. However, a base Leaf costs $32,780 before any subsidies and the Model S price, with a projection of $57,400, means that government subsidies help but aren't necessary to sell cars. Once people realise the cost savings of electrics when gas hits $4-$5+/gallon, in addition to no need for oil changes and other maintenance costs of ICE vehicles subsidies won't be necessary to sell electrics.
This argument kind of nullifies itself and comes from a biased source. With an electric vehicle programmed to begin charging at night it won't effect the grid much, if at all. Electricity is also being produced more and more by renewable, non-polluting, means. If diesels are so "clean" then why in ten years would electrics be necessary to mean emissions standards?
This one I kind of agree with. I have yet to see any car, including an ICE, that yields sticker mileage in "real-world" driving conditions. But with batteries continuously getting better the range will only increase with time. In ten to fifteen years batteries will probably be able to go 500 miles or more on a charge. This would totally eliminate the need for consumer ICE vehicles.
That was sure an eye opener for me. Thanks a lot for the helpful link

I don't know. First it's the Greeks and now this! :wink:
I wonder if "Der Spiegel", and it's contributing detractors, would care to place a wager concerning the E-Reality of the emergent shift to greener technologies, let alone the conversion to electric vehicles as the mainstay form of transportation?
BTW, I'm not a gambling man, but some things are simply no-brainers.
