    The key to it all is energy density. When they can put the power of twenty gallons of gasoline into a battery the size of a twenty gallon gas tank - and do it in 3-4 minutes - then it will all fly. Until then it won't.

    My son's boss has some top-go-the line Testa hot-rod and it is Quite impressive. Fast, fast, fast. He moved closer to the office after he bought it though. <g>

    We've been producing electric cars for almost 200 years now and the problem has always been the same: the insufficient energy density of batteries as compared to other fuel sources.

    As an interesting aside - the world speed record was held by an electric car until about 1900. <g>
