One thing they're going to have to convince me of, though, is that progressive loss of battery efficiency won't be an issue.

Serious mpg standards would be a bigger driver of change overall.
I still can't believe Hummer really existed for a while. Overpriced. Extremely inefficient. Not particularly comfortable. Not particularly reliable. Just nothing going for it except the statement: I am being obnoxious because I can.
I've been talking about distorted health care markets recently, and if people paid the true price of gas, they wouldn't have bought many Hummers.
I saw an article on a car that runs on compressed air. Two long, thin tanks under the car, propelled it for over a hundred miles.
