President Joe Biden, the radical environmental lobby, and government agencies across the nation are making a heavy push for Americans to switch to electric vehicles, but it seems car industry insiders are not so sure it is all such a good idea.

On Sunday, The Wall Street Journal published comments by Toyota Motor Corp. President Akio Toyoda who noted that the idea that everyone could so easily dump gas-powered vehicles for electric ones is simply not as feasible as the activists and government officials seem to imagine.

Toyoda warned that many insiders, who he says represents a “silent majority” in the auto industry, are quietly wondering if it is a smart move for car makers to look toward retooling exclusively for electric cars and thinking that is the future of the industry.
