I saw an Exxon Mobile commercial this evening on CBS. A man was talking about how they were developing a screen to go into lithium-ion batteries. When he mentioned hybrid cars, they cut to an image of some teeny tiny sub-compact box of a car that no one would be caught dead in. The commercial did more to discourage people from wanting hybrids, than it did promoting battery technology. What a dirty trick. I think we can count on Exxon trying to kill the Volt and other cars like it. I just hope the majority of the public can see through their propaganda. I'll do my part to spread the word about how cool electric cars will be.
