I am certainly against the government getting involved in the change. None of that really has to do with my post though.
It is highly doubtful that another power source is going to replace fuel at the point of the car for the exact reason I highlighted in my post, economies of scale ALWAYS make things more efficient and cost effective. No matter what the power source, it will be more efficient to create that power at a centralized location as transport it to your car after production. Ergo, there really is no way that electric cars are not the future of most vehicles.
I never said they wouldn't be, but now is not the time for it because it has way too many problems associated with it. If in the current times electric cars would be more efficient and cost effective, it wouldn't need massive government subsidies. The private market would have jumped on it a long time ago.
The bottom line is as of now, there is simply no actual replacement for fossil fuels; highly reliable, economically affordable, very powerful, nothing including electricity comes close.
