THE FUTURE OF TRA/N/SPORTATION

What's the future of the transportation system, in your country and in general?
This book argue that while future cars will need to run on electric power, no battery can replace gasoline’s high energy density. Thus, they argue that for intercity travel, cars would be replaced by vehicles directly connected to the gird, like trams/streetcars or trolleybuses (for intracity travel, they propose would be done by high speed rail. Air travel would sadly decline except for certain intercontinental routes).
Does this sound plausible?
