Nichola Tesla would love this sporty little car, but he would probably say..."Nice ride, but whats with the batteries"? Teslas advanced ideas for electrical power called for channeling it directly from the atmosphere with an antenna and grounding it with the earth. At any rate this cool little from Silicon Valley car is actually for sale and available for $50,000 or 30,000 on a long waiting list.
Meanwhile General Motors is reintroducing a revised electric car similer to the Toyota Prius. This after reclaiming all of the "WHATEVER HAPPENED TO THE ELECTRIC CAR" cars and sending allmost of all of them to the scrap yards on false claims that battery technology wasn't good enough to continue production of a car that had long waiting lines of folks that wanted one.
