Marketable All-Electric Cars Within 10 Years! I predict.

I'm just spamming my LJ tonight...I'm just excited about this company A123

As you can see their batteries rock!

Now this still doesn't compare to gasoline 13000Wh/Kg in terms of power density from the chart, that 3000 W/Kg translates into about 1500 Wh/Kg. This doesn't sound that great on the surface of it, but when you factor in conversion equipment, the fact that engine and transmission required to get work done, weigh much more in internal combustion engines than they do for direct drive transmission electric motors, it levels the playing field.
