Obviously, oil companies don't want a high functioning, fully electric vehicle, or they can say good night. So, the progress is very hindered and possibly never going to see its potential. It's too bad, because if it was, yes, electric vehicles could get us out of being dependent on foreign oil.
I think that going to electric vehicles, in general, will help reduce our reliance on oil from all over the world. In fact I think that moving to electric vehicles will help us not depend so much on foreign oil tycoons. This will be a great thing because it gives us back a little bit of America.
