Electric Vehicles To Become As Popular As iPhone
This statement belongs to Henrik Fisker, the man behind the luxury electric vehicle, Fisker Karma. He said that the people will get used to hybrid and electric vehicles just like they did with the smartphones and flat screen TVs.
Henrik Fisker said that ones contesting the electric and hybrid cars because of their production costs should take a look at the inventions of the last 10 years. The new technology is very expensive in the beginning, but once it is developed, the production price drops, saying that the spartphones and the flat screen TVs are the best example.
Fisker believes that this is only the beginning of the electric cars era, and just like any advanced technology, is first bought in small numbers, than the sales increase exponentially. The Fisker Karma model is a luxury electric vehicle that combines that very low emissions with sportiness and luxury in the same car.
Henrik Fisker said that the mid-size luxury car segment, will be one of the main segments for developing the hybrid and electric drive trains. The only impediment at the moment is the production price. Fisker wanted to highlight that in 1997 a flat screen TV had a price of around $20,000 and now it can be bought for $500, and that the same will happen with hybrid and electric technology
