    My concern is the amount of readily available lithium and rare earth metals to run and replace every car. I’m weary and skeptical of this endeavor. I think more time and money should be spent on alternatives to lithium as opposed to gasoline.

    I hope a sedan version is introduced. Ford did the smart thing, by taking something they were already going to build (the focus) & adapt it to electric. GM & Nissan spent many millions painstakingly designing, sculpting, sketching a new car from scratch. Spent funds to build or modify a factory. Spent lots of money advertising it.

    The market for real electric cars is going to be huge. Car manufacturers have to get past the “almost a car” model that cars like the Leaf represent. The technology is there. It just has to be put together in the right package. A company in Germany demo’d an electric that went 375 miles on a charge. Surely this can be repeated and put into production. http://organicconnectmag.com/wp/2010/10/electric-car-drives-375-miles-at-55-mph-recharges-in-6-minutes/
