If you never want to fill up again, walk. The problem is there is no demand for them. Creating a product that has no demand is really an exercise in futility. Without sufficient demand the only way they will create demand is to drop the price. If they drop it to $1000 a car, they may start to sell a few.

There is no demand because of performance, if they can build a reliable powerfull, electrical car. I would pay more for it than gas because of fuel savings.

If somebody wants to build a coal-fired power plant, they can. Its just that it will bankrupt them, Obama said, responding to a question about his cap-and-trade plan. He later added, Under my plan electricity rates would necessarily skyrocket.

Except that electricity isn't free, either. In fact, with zerO's EPA on the attack, electricity costs are going to skyrocket.

Picture this: I'm the CEO of an automobile manufacturer who holds the technology to produce cars that get 100+ MPG with no loss in performance and minimal (if any) increase in price.

Now: do I (1) bury that technology to ensure that gas-powered vehicles continue to be built? Or do I (2) start building those cars and take over 90% of the new car market?

The crowd who thinks the technology is intentionally squelched votes for #1. Anyone with half a brain and any business sense at all says #2.

I was sipping my Starbucks and using my ipad to Google things to post on Facebook about how I hate corporate America when I saw this thread.

What could go wrong with a govt. subsidized, Chinese manufactured car that runs on electric created by burning coal? "GO GREEN" I say \:\)

Well, other than that whole war on coal thing.

Big oil sucks........
