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  permalink
