Another example of missing the forest for the trees...
The relevance here is not the car itself, but the technology, which GM will expand to other models and will undoubtably pay for itself many times over.
Myopia reigns in the world of the anti-environment, pro-fossil fuel, anti-worker conservative house of mirrors. They say they care about the next generations, but they don't really mean it when it affects their own wallets.
In 50 years, electric and hybrid cars will outnumber conventional ones by a wide margin.
50 years? LOL...Incompetent government top-down planners can't predict 5 days ahead, never mind 50 years.
The wallets at issue are Obama crony capitalists being fattened up by billions in our tax money, to fail again and again.
The sudden and unexpected fracking revolution put a lie to the leftist delusion that oil and gas is running out. Ironically, the boom in natural gas is resulting in less carbon pollution, not the failed subsidized 'wind power " and electric cars...
Who knows what technological breakthroughs by the innovative private sector lie ahead, if not squelched by the Government?
The efficient and innovative private sector , if it is allowed to exist, will determine what technology will be more efficient 50 years from now.
You prove again you don't know a damm thing of what you're talking about.
The private sector developed and summarily killed the EV1. Its history is well-documented, as is the innovation behind everything from halogen lights to anti-lock braking to side curtain airbags.
You keep talking about this imaginary, unbridled private sector utopia that only existed in the robber baron days, and that to poor results.
Time and again, private enterprise has needed - begged - govt to provide direction to emerging industries and markets. Or lest we forget the utterly craven and dependent defense contractors...??
As for oil and gas, where is the rush of automakers to build NG cars? Oh, right...they want govt to subsidize it and give away public lands for pennies.
Take a sniff of what you shovelin'....
