    Here's a pretty cool marketing video showing an EV being built by robots.

    The best part of that video was that there weren't any union workers in it.

    Re: The Future is Electric

    Curiously, with nuclear plants being shutdown and no new ones either planned or under construction, the aversion to burning fossil fuels, the minimal impact of solar farms, and an already strained electric grid, where will the needed electricity come from?

    No one is in control.

    Yes, the US has to get it's act together. Most of the high-tech manufacturing today is in Asia and Europe. We are probably two decades behind South Korea, for example. Yes 20 years.

    You miss the point. Power for electric vehicles? Not the manufacturing.

    So we should give up the internal combustion engine for electric cars for which we will not have fuel?
