The race of the automotive industry towards electric cars, animated from political power, due to its “ecological conception” has taken an abrupt halt. Sector managers believe that this technology will occupy only a minority gap and they are more concerned about reducing consumption and emissions from conventional gasoline engines.
The pure electric cars have lost ground in the battle for new technologies. Cars moving exclusively with electricity today have poor battery autonomy and depending just on charging points. However, hybrid (electric battery but also gasoline or diesel engine, and can use either) are now the industry's big bet. No cut dependence on oil, but will help reduce it.
Oil companies and the interests of some shareholders tucked in governments have not helped to develop at all electrical cars, arguing that they are uncompetitive today and have high costs for the services they offer.
The goodbye to oil will have to wait, again.
