Good article, it seems they still have a way to go with battery technology but I think "where there is a will there is also a way".

  It sound very good but over here the electric car hasn't gotten very far,  in a world where we lower production to create a demand so we can increase prices it's all to crazy for me.

Oh it's happening Carl, as people see the real benefits to their pockets and lungs of electric cars more and more are switching.

Found some actual 2016 figures.

USA 17,539k cars sold, 80k EV, 64K PHEV sold with 570k EV + PHEV registered.
UK 2,690k cars sold, 10k EV, 26k PHEV sold with 91k EV + PHEV registered.

PHEV = plug-in hybrid electric vehicle

Looks like USA is embracing the EV better than the UK. .46% to .37%
