I just finished reading an article titled “Plug-In Electric Cars Are Not the Future” by Michael Kwan over at Mobile Magazine. I won’t go into too much detail since you might want to read the article yourself.

He basically says that hydrogen fuel-cells are the future and that plug in electric cars are going to die because they have no range and are not convenient. Honestly though, what could be more convenient than plugging your car in an outlet at home at night. As far as range goes, the Telsa has a battery range of 300 miles. The technology is there it’s just a little more expensive.

Also, something Michael failed to understand was that the Ford Motor Company has already given up on future development of fuel-cell technology. They realized that before anyone would ever invest in such an expensive fuel-cell car, consumers would have to be able to see that the infrastructure is already in place. As you need special fuel-cell fueling stations for this kind of technology to work on a mass scale.

Sorry folks, I believe that electric cars are the future. We just need to make sure that the electricity that powers our communities are derived from a green source like wind, solar or geothermal.

Also, I just want to add that if the big motor companies are unable (or unwilling) to really think and put together a car for the future than maybe it’s time for them to go bankrupt and let young innovative companies take over.

    It’s important to distinguish between electric vehicles and electric cars when considering safety features. Just because something passes federal safety standards doesn’t mean it’s passed safety standards for traditional cars. Just as importantly, being “all electric” doesn’t mean it falls below those standards either. More »
