    Still this is good news as it breaks the myth that electric cars are wimpy. Let’s hope these efforts don’t fall victim to Big Oil.

    I’d trade it for two $50,000 cars that go 0-60 in 8 seconds. 🙂

    Almost any all-electric car whill blow the hubcaps off a gas-engined car from a standing stop because it has full torque at zero rpm. IOW, floor in at a stop light and you immediately have full power.

    There are stories of people with the GM EV pulling up next to a Ferrari at a stop light then leaving the Ferrari in the dust.

    They took the governor off a GM EV, stripped it down, and it did 170 at the Bonneville salt flats.

    EVs can be very fast!

    Saw a great bumpersticker on a car today. It read: “Biodiesel powered. War not required.” (or something like that)
