Both of the better known electric vehicles will probably have a price tag for the amount of they use, and the Chevy Volt is getting the worst reviews of any car in recent memory...oh, the TESLA is still hiding from all of you here, but there is a wonderful link on GigOm.com which does not exactly rhapsodize on the battery life of any and all electric cars and in one article written a year before they pushed the two seater for sale, CEO E.Musk is quoted as saying "he would bet on CAPACITORS OVER BATTERIES" and if you read further,it comes to the conclusion it was done to get the sports car and then the 4 door out earlier than the proposed times of 2012 and 2013. Musk is a brilliant inventor but he tires of projects (much like his many marriages---equal to Gingrich)and is now deeply involved with batteries/capacitors. The correspondent for this very brainy online site and magazine is a well respected expert on the subject, Katie Fehrenbacher whose article appeared in GigaOm on March 16, 2011.

your reading comprehension is seriously lacking. NOWHERE in the blog you reference does it say ANYTHING about Tesla "...read further,it comes to the conclusion it was done to get the sports car and then the 4 door out earlier than the proposed times of 2012 and 2013."
I know you hate Tesla, but please stick to FACTS with your attacks....or learn to read.
