The "technology" is has been here for time now, but the technology is a departure from anything the consumer is used to. It all boils down to economics. The environmentalists say the time to change our way of thinking is NOW. The free market economists say the let the market determine the next source of clean efficient energy, "necessity is the Mother of invention" approach. The battle line drawn is over "when" the migration will take place, not should there be change. It's too bad the radical scientists on both sides of the political spectrum have muddied the waters.

All I know is the sound of some high torque electric motor is not going to stir the senses as some of the air-cooled overhead chain cammed boxers or the high overlap solid lifter SBC 302s. What marvelous engines!! Hello "Wh-i-i-r-r-r", goodbye "chitty-chitty-bang-bang".
