The problem is the money mentality. GM wants cheap $2-hr Mexican labour. Ideally, this means paying no money at all. The cheapest labour is slave labour.
This invites the obvious redneck view that the US should be importing brown people to be worked to death in US factories. After all, the people coming over the border represent an endless supply. Why bother feeding them? Just work 'em to death for no pay and no food and no benefits. You can't get more economical than that.
You could even do the Soilent Green thing and feed them to themselves.
Not ethical, you say?
Neither is exploiting cheap labour in another country.

That much I can understand.
Bailing out ailing businesses is something I'll never agree with. If they're failing, let 'em die out. Same with the bank bailouts. Make the buggers work for their existence and struggle, like everyone else.

You do need them for heavy duty work but for your standard run-about, electric will suit most people's needs.
Now if they can get the batteries to cover a 500 k distance in one charge.
Last stats I read said they will not get me to the nearest city and back/100 k without a recharge.
Waiting a half hour for them to charge up, if you can find a charging station...Does not appeal to most.
I suspect we can see a lot more automotive lines going to the way of the dinosaurs.
More plastic bodies for lighter weight so less need for steel.
The plastic does not rust and bodies will last forever if they are UV resistant, it's what is made of steel that kills them.
Here we go, send the slaves out to clear up the plastic in the oceans etc and turn them into cars.
If your going to be a stinking greedy capitalist slaver at least make up for it by doing something for the planet while your at it.
I do hope they find a way to recycle the batteries before they go into production. They are evil incarnate on an ecological platform.
Me forget to mention the alternative of hydrogen fueled cars. They didn't go into their components.
I need to research this, one good law suit and Mr. PI will be richer than the Rothschild family.

I would not worry too much, I was just complaining to myself about the huge pine trees Hydro one left for me to clean up on my front hill.Their lines run over my driveway so they are suppose to take the big trees down for me.
I got the small ones but they refuse to chop up the ones the size of rhinos.
There is a system we are no longer privy to using two cones to break gravity and move heavy object.
I believe they tap into the magnetic fields.
(One finds out about this stuff by keeping an eye on the archaeologist.)
A little tinkering and those machine will be turning soil.

On the cutting edge, a motor-less plane recently made its first test-flight. It runs on electromagnetic energy.

It has been reported that it's magnetic field analyses was disrupted as the reason for the crash.
Add some grease paint and a colorful wig and you can guess what I think of the Bozo in your link!
Nice try, good science at least.
I was thinking also that tptb are nearing their inevitable grand appearance too, after all the Antarctica flare ups.
Not yet it would seem.
Big argument as to why they keep hidden. Sure they are waiting for us to evolve yet they do nothing to educate more than they can control.
