Check out this Politico article about how the oil industry is influencing development of electric cars.

Business is driven by technology and policy (read politics) and this is an excellent example of a huge policy debate that uses effective quotes like “The typical consumer..should not have to pay for incentives or charging stations that mainly benefit people wealthy enough to afford cars like Teslas.” This quote comes from the Freedom to Drive coalition made up of auto dealers and oil advocates. They claim they are on the “side of angels”…. Our industry needs to wisely respond with A New Paradigm of Thinking and “position” for a huge opportunity in electric vehicles while controlling costs and waiting for emerging technologies to impact the consumer.
