What a difference a battery makes:
A "radical eight-wheeled, 600kW rocket from Japan is proof that electric cars can be fast and fun. Called Eliica, short for Electric Lithium-Ion battery Car, it boasts a neck-snapping 0-100kmh time of just four seconds and a 0-160kmh time of seven seconds, which means the Eliica accelerates faster than a Porsche 911 Turbo." Top speed is over 200 mph. The key is the Li+ battery; expensive now in this quantity, but dropping in price as each generation of consumer electronics is built. 10:29:59 PM
