Even GM has seen the light

Even GM is putting some real effort behind electric cars.

The idea is to have a battery with enough capacity to enable daily commutes to work and the usual shopping rounds. They calculate ca 100km round trip daily. This of course puts a lot demand on the electric grid, or rather the conversion of renewables into electricity. If it were fossil fuels or nuclear power to power up the cars there is not that much of environmental gain.

Lets see if they can make it working for normal personal cars with a reasonable price tag. The current battery cars with any kind of reasonable prestanda (small sports cars) cost ca 500000€ which is a bit hefty to say the least.

Anyway, it doesn't solve the problem with congestion although with all cars like this maybe one can breath properly...
