Questions for discussion:

  • What do you think will drive sales of electric vehicles?
  • Do you believe that “green” vehicles will eventually become more common than regular automobiles?
  • How much more do you believe the “green-customer” would be willing to pay over the price of a conventional automobile of the same model?
