Take a look at Tesla Motors. Pretty awesome stuff coming out and will really change the image of electric cars. But the big question will be where does that power come from.


NYWB,
thanks for the ref on Tesla motors. that car on the front page is amazing.
too bad about the price. 95 grand.
unless the major auto manufacturers get all over the electric car it looks like there will be a serious price disincentive.
yeah, i agree, the coal has to go.

Well, we don't all need to have the third fastest production vehicle on the planet - given the performance specs, it is a bargain compared to competitive Ferraris/Porsches :-) And I think it's an awesome way to convince the public that electric cars are not toys for nerds. (even if they are funded by Google founders... whom by the way have VERY deep pockets)

Tesla has already announced plans for a factor in New Mexico that will be building sedans in the $50-$65K price range:

This is already more momentum than I've ever seen for electric vehicles - the big enabler has been Li-ion battery technology, which never made it to the EV1.

There is a lot of progress happening here. Tesla is coming out with a lower priced car and you might be interested in Phoenix Motorcars products.
