tdgeek: Crossover point? I could buy a Leaf or a sporty and hot 370Z for the same price, get back to me on the crossover.
A Leaf vs a 370Z? Mmm, that's not quite a crossover point for me.
Yes, the premium is hefty. But then again I remember when CD-RW drives were $2500 and blanks $5 each
The R+D needs to come off. But if the car manufacturers cannot produce them in numbers,leave the R+D on, they will still sell. When production is higher the R+D can be reduced (as more sales to spread it around) so R+D recovery is still secure, and sales and profits will grow. If what comes to market sells and doesnt gather cobwebs in the showroom, its not time yet for any subsidies.
