Despite all the obvious challenges and drawbacks, most of the major manufacturers are fully committed to autonomous electric vehicles. Another dumbing down of the population, we won't need to think for ourselves shortly, there will be some machine doing that for you!

Uber is the real test bed here. All those drivers are slowly putting themselves and others out of employment as they destruction test the software and systems in live trials until they won’t be needed anymore when you’ll be able to order a cab which drives itself and drops you off where you need to go.

Wonder what the human race will look like, physically, after a few thousand years of having machinery and A.I. do it all for us?

As stated previously, petrol & diesel (oil) will still play a significant part in future transport.

There are a variety of chemical and compounds that can be used in batteries such as cobalt, plus there will be compounds that will be used in future battery tech that have not yet been discovered or invented. 

but are batteries the future......

pointless when they're been charged by oil.....

it like someone going veggie to save the plant- then living off imported food which is airfreighted in......

Without giving any indication of how long they intend to prolong.

But large scale power generation will be emission free in the future, it'll take time but it'll happen. Some countries will take longer than others, and of course there'll always be some 'rogue nations' that won't do it of won't do it very quickly but if they're not oil producing nations they'll probably be forced into no emission power generation because no oil or previously oil producing nations will sell to them or will not be allowed to sell to them.

so when oil runs out in 500 years then then should start allowing electric cars on the road but not before.....

Oil will never run out, it's a selfvreplenishing resource not produced from prehistoric rotten vegetation as you would have believed.
