The Future of Electric Vehicles

1.) Ford thinks hybrids will beat electric cars. Electric cars are clean and high-tech and seem like they should be the future, many say. But while visionaries and gadget-geeks alike clamor for more automotive electrification, the big global auto manufacturers continue to hedge their bets, with Ford the latest to join the chorus of concern.

2.) As battery prices drop, will electric cars finally catch on? At the moment, Americans aren’t exactly dashing out to dealerships to buy electric cars. The plug-in Nissan Leaf, which runs 75 miles on a single charge, has seen sales plummet since June 2011.

Even afte the discovery and implementation of petroleum, many cities preferred the superior battery-cars to the stinking gasoline-powered ones, for the time being the dirty competition seemed to have no chance with the cars, but gradually gasoline destroyed the potentials of electocars in their infancy. Why? Is it for the cost-effective nature of Oil? No! Why then? It is because the devil had a mission, a mission to make oil-producing states rich — by making them rich he prepared them for the ultimate war against the Kingdom of God. Look around which counties are producing oil and you will be ab;e to identify the movement and spread of the unholy ghost.
