There are a handful of analysts who believe electric cars will never be anything more than a giant failure.

And there's one in particular who's actually made a nice little name for himself bashing electric cars over the past few years. I'm not going to tell you his name, because I don't want to give him any publicity. I believe his intentions to be dishonorable and his analysis dishonest.

Still, he's a pretty smart guy who presents arguments that tend to be quite persuasive to those who don't know much about electric car development. I often get emails from readers that quote him, asking whether or not his analysis is sound.
