Coming from Chrysler, I'll believe it when I see it. Just throwing a bunch of batteries at a current design is somewhat less than optimal. The inefficiencies of the vehicle must be counteracted by more, heavier, and more expensive batteries. It's not cost effective without streamlining the car first.
