    Actually I think these guys are for real and on to an approach that might help develop the technology. Most electric cars up to now have had zero automotive appeal and performance to match. Tesla has Lotus making the chassis and are shooting for some good performance numbers. By making it work at the high end they may have a chance to make an everyday electric actually work.

    What does make me skeptical of their schedule and ability to meet their goals is that you don't see any video of a running car front and center on the site (unless I missed that). I'd like to see more than dark still images of the car's details to be fully convinced.

    Believe it or not, they actually have pretty much sold all the cars already. There was a thing about the manufacture on the CBS evening news where they had the big party debuting the car in California and had some big shots come in and test drive the car. Arnold Swartzeneggar drove one as well. If the car wasn't $100K, I would buy one. Those folks over there need to figure out how many cars would have to be produced to get the production costs down to about $18-$20K so they can retail the cars in the low to mid $30K range. I think if they can achieve that, the car will have a LOT of appeal. Fact of the matter is, most people don't drive more than 250 miles per day. And if somebody would be driving more than that, they'll either have a second car powered by gas, or they just wouldn't buy one of these cars. Me, I would LOVE to have a high performance electric car. I wouldn't hesitate to drive all over the place then!
