BLOG SURF: Electric cars

A recent article in the Harvard Business Review suggested that if someday millions of people want to buy electric vehicles instead of gas-powered ones, car manufacturers are prepared to adapt their production models to start churning out units immediately.

I wonder – are we at this point already?

Today we have more than a million electric vehicles plying the roads around the world. Nissan-Renault is currently leading global sales of electric vehicles, and other brands like Audi, BMW, General Motors, Ford, Mercedes Benz, and Volvo are also getting ready to enter the market.

Maybe we have reached a point of no return on electric vehicles. As of last week, over 500,000 plug-in vehicles have been sold in the US, according to the US Department of Energy, which is a major milestone.

Naysayers have lost the battle, and will soon join the bandwagon and admit that electric vehicles are the only option going forward.
