Good news on the automotive front

This is good news for America as well.

Introducing the Tesla S: It's electric, it's got great lines, and there's a waiting list a mile long

"Instead of a bulky transmission console between the driver’s seat and the passenger seat, there is a nice empty space for parking your briefcase or purse. Instead of analog dials, there is a 17-inch Wi-Fi touchscreen display that handles everything from the navigation system to your MP3 collection to the suspension control settings. On the version I tested, there aren’t even door handles—until you touch the spot where they should be, which prompts them to emerge like the wings of a Golden Snitch."

Yes, it's pricey. All innovations these days start out priced so only the wealthy can afford them. But that's temporary. Once the industry gets into gear the price will drop - and drop.
