Battery Weight. Weight has a dramatic impact on overall transportation efficiency, and even lithium ion battery technologies add significant weight. Toyota’s current battery pack adds 150 pounds to the Prius, the Chevy Volt battery pack is expected to weigh 350 pounds, and Tesla’s battery pack exceeds 1000 pounds. Equivalent storage in carbon fiber tanks weigh 75 pounds.

Is what their site says.

I like creating these dualities to stir the pot. I really have nothing against moving electrons.
