Not quite right; while there is some effort to push electric cars ( ~ W8 Store Apps) the vast majority of dollars and effort is going into petrol cars (~ Windows desktop). Of course with Windows we see exactly the opposite with most of Microsoft's efforts going into W8 Store Apps/environment and next to nothing going into the desktop other than moving its features over to the prior.

So... Toyota, GM, Tesla, etc should all give up on building electric cars... because the market has spoken and petrol cars have obviously won out, will never be fully replaced and they shouldn't waste their time or money building things that only a very small niche of users want today?
