No, I'm suggesting that trial lawyers and law professors have no business guessing which technologies are going to be the ones that someday lead us to the promised land. When there's money to be made in more efficient transportation, the market will naturally move there.
Batteries are born losers. They're not efficient. They don't solve anything. The only thing they enable is off-siting the production of energy so the environmental costs are placed out-of-site, out-of-mind.
Coal-powered electric cars are good for a clean (ignorant) conscience. Not so much for a clean environment.
