    Well, thankfully to this nation, they are working on it. Production and research were forced and from this viable models were created. Now, the early adopters of the nation will begin to buy these cars. As this occurs, as Malcom Gladwell would point out, there will need to be a tipping point when a combination of mavens, early adopters, and necessity cause production to increase enough for economies of scale to take effect and production costs to decline.

    Or, to make a long story short, the more people who buy it in the near future, the cheaper it will become.

    You mean like hybrids whose sales still suck

    I thought you might be interested (at least a little) in this:

    When you consider that people are still buying SUV's I am not surprised. It is much like the frog in boiling water, some people need a smack in the face before they realize what trouble is headed their way. I think hybrids are around 3%. I did not get a hybrid, I opted for a 4-cyl turbo (I wanted the speed but not all the time).

    Anyway, I don't know about you, but while I'd take a hybrid car, I'd love to have an electric one. Far less moving parts, lighter, cleaner, faster, etc. Sounds great to me. Oh and cheaper!

    We are on our second hybrid car. We bought the first hybrid in this country, the Honda Insight. We loved that car, it was sporty, it would fly, and it got 70 MPG! Then grandchildren happened and we needed a 4-seater so we got a Prius. Not near as cool and sporty looking but the power is good and it gets 50 MPG.

    Have you checked out the Tesla, Model S. I can't even think about their roadster model (because of the cost and our need for a 4-seater), but someday maybe the model S.

    I had not heard of that one. I just checked it out online. Super sporty looking! The price is out of my league however, its $30,000 more than the $50,000 Tesla Model S. Very cool looking car though!

    Indeed. I'd love to see how the Karma performs. And it's reliability.
