The internal combustion engine (ICE) has had a good run. Are electric vehicles here to stay?  Is the end in sight for the machine that changed the world? Will the ICE really go away at some point?  Or is there much life left in the internal combustion engine? Join us on August 25 as Doug Patton presents his views on the subject.
