Ask Better Place's Shai Agassi a question

Here is the real question: Why should I buy a $30K car that will lock me into buying miles from you? How do I know that you won't jack up the price thus making my initial investment a disaster? What happens if you go bankrupt . . . does my car become worthless? That is my biggest problem with Better Place . . . it requires a lot of trust in them. And even in the best case . . . they don't go bankrupt and charge a somewhat reasonable price for miles, the technology may improve fast thus making it much cheaper for me to just buy an EV and charge it myself at home. I like the battery-swap concept because that is the only economical way to give pure EVs long-range capability. But I just loathe the concept of getting locked into a single supplier.
