People don’t want electric cars, and car makers know this. Too bad the government doesn’t care.

There are (at least) two reasons why it’s a real shame that the government forces us to pay for electric vehicle failures: 1) because most of the companies making electric vehicles are publicly traded companies, we can freely invest in them on our own; we don’t need to be forced. and 2) we can buy vehicles like the Leaf, the Fisker, the Tesla, and the Volt and in doing so, support the companies making these vehicles. Because of both 1 and 2, there is absolutely no need for the government to forcefully intervene. And there is no clearer evidence of the lack of consumer support for electric vehicles than the fact that neither 1 nor 2 are happening.
