    If lithium-ion batteries are as ready as you think they are, then why does the US Government have to subsidize them? The US Government is also giving money to lead carbon battery manufacturers, so would you say that lead carbon and lithium-ion are at the same point?

    And why aren't these companies making millions of PHEV's and EV's instead of just a few thousand?
