The so-called market is based on successful-looking stox. Over 5 years, WPRT will be a "bit player" in its field. Its technology will in use but its not miraculous stuff, and it will not have any power to control pricing: the engine builders will decide what to pay (make no mistake, the likes of DLPH and Bosch could easily make these items, patents not-withstanding).

Cummins is planning to make a 15-liter engine on their own...it's going to take them 3 years (minimum). Any company can say they're going to start building NG technology. The market may have moved beyond you by the time you're ready with your product.

This stuff is not like an app that you can slap together in a few months.

I agree but the price is too low, this is a twenty dollar stock all day when the switch happens
