    As long as it's economically viable it can happen. Things like subsidies and energy costs/availability will play a deciding factor. The market will get a chance to kick the tires of the industry in general. There's probably enough space for all forms of vehicles for a while.

      Agree about space for all forms of vehicles for awhile - especially when and where the electricity grid isn't yet decarbonized. Where I live, a good portion of the household electricity comes from coal power plants, so I wouldn't get an electric vehicle because it basically becomes a coal-powered car over here. I think the key is, as you said, to allow the market to test out the electric car industry in general, while still letting all forms of vehicles coexist for awhile. Frankly, I'd like to see a) the grid decarbonized and b) better public transportation as a much higher priority than electric cars.
