I don't doubt that it can be done. In fact I'm quite sure that well be seeing one very soon. But I don't know that there will be enough of a market for them to attract the larger manufacturers. Every time I have a conversation about electric cars I hear the same 2 things no matter who I'm talking to 1 they're too expensive right now 2 not having to pay for gas is great but I don't want to have to wait hours to recharge my car.

So I think until there is a faster way to recharge or if tesla get the battery exchange program they were talking about a few months ago going, electric cars will remain a niche market until something better comes along. (Toyota FCV anyone?)
Aiming for 50 MPG from an automatic.
