Seeing as there really IS no such thing as an American car anymore, I don't think it will make much difference... It will come down to a decent car at - more importantly - a decent price...

Somehow I don't see any German automakers selling EVs in volume anytime soon. They are worse than Toyota/Honda in their feet dragging. They seem to have this attitude of - let someone else do all the hard work, we will then just go and cash in.

Prophetic. For Audi at least, but not in a good way. Audi is outta EVs

They are probably right... With the U.S. Dollar worth little more than toilet paper these days, they likely couldn't sell it at a price where it would, well, sell...

How about it guys. Is this realistic or not? I for one think it is.

All we have to do is make electricity as easy to purchase as gasoline and it is game over.

Not by fall of 2012 but in any event, only if they can find buyers for that many, and I think that is unlikely by 2015...

This list is fantasy... fortunately based on the date on the article, it is very obsolete. I doubt the government is still clinging to these numbers. 120,000 volts per year? That's a joke!
