Re: Are auto companies seeing limitations in EVs?

Hi Junko, I don't think you want to put all your R&D in one direction if you are a big car company. Neither EV or hydrogen cell cars will surive without goverment incentives. And who knows what the government will do? Last time they pull out all incentives for solar power killing quickly growing industry in the process. The same can happen with EV or hydrogen cells. If I were them I would place small bets here & there and try to see what the consumer driven givernment incentives would do. People love green technologies as long as they don't have to pay a cent more for them ;-)...Kris

Are auto companies seeing limitations in EVs?

I actually find it fascinating that suddenly in 2013, the automotive industry is reviving their energy around fuel cell cars. 

Remember more than a decade ago, the idea of hydrogen cars was supposed to be the wave of the future?

Does this suggest in any way that auto companies are seeing a limited growth on EVs? Hence, also betting on fuel cells?

Seriously, if a car company knows the answer, isn't it much more efficient to pool all of their R&D resources on one thing?
