The current state of gas prices has many wondering about the future of electric vehicles. In this episode of the Disruptive Voice, senior researcher Tom Bartman explains why low oil prices is not actually bad news for Tesla but questions whether Elon Musk can in fact pull off production of a $35,000 car, the upcoming Model 3.

Also explored in this episode is the impact of the modular nature of car design, the foreign and domestic markets for low speed electric vehicles, and the unique opportunity that asymmetric motivation offers.
