I think they used the same argument for brushless motors, but it seems to be catching-on very well indeed.
Granted, the OS unit I linked to is quite expensive (over a grand), but that's probably because it's new; hopefully it can trickle-down to something more reasonnable with time, and probably doesn't have to be as sophisticated for cars as for aircraft. We can only hope.
