Electric Cars' Secret Advantage: They're Just Nicer To Drive

Clairvoyance is apparently one of John's claimed abilities. One would have to be so to predict the future sales of electric cars, which, in turn, depends 98% on the future cost of batteries. So, John, when will we see $125 per kilowatthour batteries? By my reckoning, at that point, or somewhat before, electric cars will render gas powered vehicles totally obsolete. John is apparently predicting a slow battery cost reduction. I think it will occur as a result at one (or more) of the several battery research efforts and that the price drop will be precipitous. I guess that in ten years (or, in my view, much less time) we will know which of us has the correct view of the future. I'm betting on me (and Toyota, DBM-Energy, and some others).
