I am a former sell-side analyst -- UBS 1996-2002, Needham 2002-2006 and ThinkEquity 2006-2008. These days I review automobiles and other technology products, as well as analyze the automotive and technology industries, and coming up with long/short ideas. I also continue to write (less frequently) on macroeconomics and politics.
I am an engineer dedicated to technology in general and battery electric vehicles in particular. I have owned my first BEV now for 7 months and like it very much. I am no environemental fundamentalist and have no opinion whether or not electric cars are any benefit for the immediate environement - short term or long term. I drive electric because I like the feeling and the concept.
I am a complete ignorant when it comes to investing and I do not plan to either invest nor to learn anything about it.
My sole purpose of being here is to advocate for the future possibility to upgrade the batterypack of any given BEV to newer technologies thus increasing range in older cars. Cars that function absolutely perfect and that were made back when they were controlled like cars and not Ipads. Cars where the driver is not reduced to a passenger.
So... I noticed that some, if not all, writers in here communicate with top staff and decision makers at the car manufacturers at a regular basis.
- And therefore it is my modest hope that I could find lobbying support in here so my goal could one day be fullfilled. Not necessarily this year or next year. But some time.
Thank you very much for your time.
I appreciate your efforts.
