By 2011 year end, competition will be intense for electric car United States leadership. Tesla has the early lead in freeway-speed electric cars, but Nissan has over 13,000 deposits. Toyota and GM will fight for plug-in hybrid early market share. Ford will have multiple electric car and plug-in hybrid offerings. European and Asian competitors will enter the fray. Don’t count out the good old United States “can do” entrepreneurs with exciting innovation and venture capital backing.
