That's why I said "all industries NEED early adopters. It gets the ball rolling". And Tesla is leading the way. But in the end, it might not be dominate. Who would have thought in 1930, 40, 50, etc that Toyota and VAG would be the two biggest auto companies in the world? Both from countries that the US went to World War with? Back in a time with the big Three ruled the industry and GM was the biggest company in the world?I think it took a company like Tesla to show that it IS possible to make an alternative fuel vehicle in mass production to spur some of the activists to push for more change via regulation.
Tesla might be tainted with the ideologists, the green advocates. Its not a mistake that author wrote "Toyota is a company that sells cars, not an ideology.".
