We have been prepping for the idea for 30 years or so when the first electric car came out. In fact the first electric vehicle was back in 1832 but that is another story.

Frik Els printed that a new report from AlixPartners study expects $255 billion pouring into R&D and capital expenditures to bring some 207 electric models to the market by 2022. A further $61 billion has been earmarked for autonomous-vehicle technologies according to the study.
