One other thing that I knew, but hadn't bothered to mention here yet, is that Electric Vehicles have a great history of speeding.

Electric Auto Association - Electric Vehicle History
"1903: First speeding ticket it was earned in an EV...."

Also, the first taxi cab in New York City to get a speeding ticket was electric.

Of course, now we have the White Zombie, Killacycle, and maybe someday I will soup up a Citicar...
