Don’t want to take this too far off topic, but the future is probably a combo of gas/electric hybrids, hydrogen, and electric. Electric has a lot of weaknesses that are hard to fully overcome, such as charging time to 100%, losing range from sitting, max range, etc...

I expect to see a lot more progress on the hydrogen fuel cell side in the next decade. But I think most mainstream transportation will still be covered by gas/electric hybrids, hydrogen, and probably still some pure ICE vehicles.

Electric vehicles are cool, but I think they will mostly be relegated to people living in dense cities. Where I live currently an electric car would be great for my commute. Where I used to live in Texas, an electric car wouldn’t have worked at all.
