All Electric Cars Are a Fraud

Petersen is an attorney specializing in capital investments in the alternative space with Fefer, Cie in Berne, Switzerland. He argues the entire electric car movement is a fraud orchestrated by a few big car companies to growing numbers of “green”

Batteries are expensive, and do a poor job of a gas tank. For example, the $100,000 Tesla roadster uses model 18650 cell type batteries, which is to using “6,000 hamsters to a stage coach.”

Deutsche Bank says there are enough new factories on the board to build batteries 36 million Kwh by 2015. These be used to power vehicles the $44,300 Nissan Leaf, launches in December, and will be by several hundred larger, can sized batteries.

But even if the total battery output is solely to vehicles like the fuel savings would to only 600 million gallons of a year, worth only billion, about five worth of global oil production. If batteries were devoted to vehicles like the Prius, the savings would amount to 3.8 gallons worth, a much substantial $11.4 billion.

The low hanging fruit for investors in the efficiency race can be found by forward existing, simpler, and technologies. A great example is the integrated starter/alternator. Cars about 10% of their fuel at traffic lights while in cities. “Stop-start” turns the off, and then restarts it the light turns green.

European car manufacturers are rushing with this fuel which costs about per vehicle, to meet stringent CO2 The system requires more batteries which can handle of engine starts a day, of a handful. The Department of Energy handed $34 million to Xide (XIDE) to develop just a product using a lead-carbon

Global auto parts Johnson Controls (JCI) is involved in the space.

The play is that far more versatile can command much higher possibly $150, compared to the $57 for traditional car batteries. Those a look at XIDE will a $429 million market cap at $5.57/share versus $20 a year In the meantime, car companies are going to back on making major investments in lithium battery trains until the technology proven.

Better to invest in a that may become profitable year, rather than in years, or never.
