No its not that simple

Goes back 100 years.

But you've probably don't believe in secret cartels either.

In 1908, Henry Ford began mass production of the infamous gasoline air polluting car known as the Model T. Most people in the U.S. believed that automobiles would be powered by the newly developed wonder of ELECTRICITY. What most people did not realize was that the Ford Motor Company was a SUBSIDIARY of the Rockefeller owned Standard Oil Company.

When the other car companies saw the vast profits that Ford was making on his gasoline powered Model T, they abandoned the electric car, and began to produce their own air polluting cars.

In the early 20th century, National City Lines, which was a partnership of General Motors, Firestone, and Standard Oil of California, purchased many electric tram networks across the country to dismantle them and replace them with GM buses. The partnership was convicted for this conspiracy, but the ruling was overturned in a higher court. Electric tram line technologies could be used to recharge BEVs and PHEVs on the highway while the user drives, providing virtually unrestricted driving range.

"Mr. Electric" Thomas Edison ENCOURAGED Ford to produce gasoline powered vehicles!!

Thomas Alva Edison is a revered icon in the U.S. and around the world. Many credit him with developing electricity and lighting up the world. He was just another Rockefeller shill and Nikola Tesla was the man who electrified the world—not Thomas Edison.

Edison—acting under order from his boss Rockefeller—encouraged Henry Ford in the development of the gasoline engine. As a matter of fact, Edison and Ford were very good friends for all of their adult lives.

Electric cars back then were considering “women’s cars” as they didn’t require hand crank starting and were easier to operate they were underpowered and had very short range hence why when gas powered vehicles became more refined gas was King.

ETA- You’ve got the Henry Ford/ Edison thing extremely twisted:

Thomas Edison, one of the world’s most prolific inventors, thought electric vehicles were the superior technology and worked to build a better electric vehicle battery. Even Henry Ford, who was friends with Edison, partnered with Edison to explore options for a low-cost electric car in 1914, according to Wired. Yet, it was Henry Ford’s mass-produced Model T that dealt a blow to the electric car. Introduced in 1908, the Model T made gasoline-powered cars widely available and affordable. By 1912, the gasoline car cost only $650, while an electric roadster sold for $1,750. That same year, Charles Kettering introduced the electric starter, eliminating the need for the hand crank and giving rise to more gasoline-powered vehicle sales.

Turbine is a bit ambitious. Think more along the lines of a pneumatic air ratchet level of technology. And they have been working on them in India. Last I looked into it they powered a small vehicle like a Gator or one of those little trucks that you see in Japan that can do 60 mph.
