If all electric cars had 300+ mile range people would have no excuse not to switch.

There's hope, but let's see wether that claimed performance can be delivered in the real world

That A2 has been burned in a warehouse fire, and unfortunately, this only makes the batteries more controversial:

Actually, they have said more recently that these batteries are in the several thousand dollar range; which like the rest of this would be pretty close to nirvana.

But, we have no corroborating evidence for any of it, yet.
