    Individuals embrace change but people do not. The main issue with many countries is not the car, but the infrastructure. Charging stations are not common and recharging is still seen as a nuisance rather than a simple operation. Charging and available stations needs to become the norm for the masses to uptake. There will still be a large number of people that want the engine sound, interaction and fell and this is where hybrid cars may become prevalent. I have driven the Tesla S and it was a blast. However I wouldn't buy one because I couldn't connect to the car without the sounds that I love.

    Motor vehicles weren't popular till they were affordable to the masses. We're still in early days.

    Another BMW story:


    BMW says electrification "over-hyped", diesel engines to last "20 more years"
