A leading consulting and research firm in Mountain View, California, Frost & Sullivan, has released its prediction for 2015 electric car sales. The group believes that about 480,000 battery electric vehicles (EVs) will be sold worldwide by the end of the year.

I'm glad you asked! It is the number the state of California stamps on a "smog part" if it isn't an OEM part.

Why Is It A Pointless Comparison?
From the naked eye, you may be thinking what’s the big deal? These trucks both have a rugged look to them and feature lift kits, suspension upgrades and large, knobby tires. Also, they may seem to both share a place outside of the “regular” truck lineup meaning they are ripe for cross-shopping by consumers. If this is your thinking, stop. You are only looking like a fool.
