It appears that European regulators’ dreams of eliminating carbon-based fuels in transportation is closer than ever, but each time this happened in the past, problems arose to stand in the way. As each step in emissions byproduct reduction has unfolded over the last 25 years, roadblocks got more difficult. Battery technology did not progress as had been hoped. Fossil fuel prices varied wildly, and car companies jumped from small car production to luxury car production when prices fell, and back to small cars again.
