    Great to see, the beginning of a new era. 20 years from now we’ll look back and laugh at how terrible and inefficient gas/diesel was; very exciting times.

      20 years? I laugh right now at how terrible and inefficient gas/diesel are. I’m laughing so much I’ve tears in my eyes. Oh wait, that’s actually the air pollution making my eyes water.

    There are those who lead, those who follow and those who should just get out of the way. It’s pretty clear how the Chinese see themselves. I read this and the story about the Gogoro Scooter, choosing its launch city as TaiPei. Openness to change is going to be the key to future success.
