Look, I'm listening regularly to Prof. Dudenhöffer, the most respected "Car Pope" in the world. And his opinions are not that kind of nebulous statements your'e referring to.
Your pro - if it really exists, what I doubt - is completely wrong and seems to have no idea at all.

Edit: However, it is not so bad if the US falls behind in this regard. This opens up great opportunities for us in Europe and China.
What doesn't seem to be counted in is that, for the most part, the evolution of the ICE is over but for small improvements. Honestly I don't think that my cars have improved more than 3-4 mpg (real world) on the average in the last 10 years. For purely combustion engine, we may get another 2-3 mpg in the next few years, if that.

However battery technology is evolving at an incredible pace, and is likely to continue to do so in the next 10 years.

I could be wrong, but to me it seems that electric will win this race, and not in the far future.
Texas A&M University. I have a video of the event but it's about and hour and a half long so... if you don't want to take my word for it. I'm more than happy to post it on YouTube and link you the video.

I would be interested. Not because I don't believe you, but I actually agree with your prof to some degree. Unless battery technology has a massive technological increase in the next 5 years, which I keep hearing but not seeing, I can't see a vast majority of the population moving to electric cars.

There are some fundamental problems that still have not been solved with electric cars. Ask anyone that parks on the street in Europe, then ask anyone working on the power grid.

Wow, looks amazing! Very i3'ish
Only think I don't like is the grille, but they'll work on that I'm sure.

Shame it will be toned down in the production version.

If that is the actual final design, I'm really not a fan of the gigantic stretched out kidney grill. There seems to be a trend with Audi and the Japanese car makers to have a ridiculously over sized grill and the huge elongated kidneys remind me of this trend. Would look at lot better if they truncated the height of them so they at least weren't extending down into the black fender area below.

Speechless? Nope, not speechless. That in my humble opinion (and others may disagree.....)
