you over-unity guys need to get real!

I figured if 200-250 miles per charge 100,000 mile battery life = 500-400 cycles nothing new or ground breaking for the battery life.

it doesn't burn gas
which is worth something

ahhhh there in lies the problem as Toecutter was saying make a high performance vehicle . . . they did and thus the cost goes up . . . you think engineers and CEO's work for three years for nothing? When was the last time you built a high performance vehicle? Carbon fiber body - Lithium battery probably their cost $23,000 plus battery management and assembly. $1,000 for electric energy to go 100,000 miles no maintenance cost.

If you want a $10k electric car, there's always the Zap Zebra in the US, or the REVA in England.

And according to someone who was at the unveiling and who posted on the EVDL, people were writing cheques - not for deposits, but for the full amount.
Looks like I'm in the wrong business

I'd reserve judgment on that feeling for a couple of years
