Boeing's (BA -0.6%) lithium battery problem looks to be just a bump in the road for electric car investors, says Seeking Alpha contributor Randy Carlson. But, if they prove to be a fire hazard because of a fundamental flaw, the bleed-over has the potential to put electric vehicle programs at some major car companies in jeopardy.
