Iv been following electric car development for 15 years. Im very pleased that almost every auto Manufacturer is jumping on the bandwagon with their version. Only problem is i think it would make sense to electrify the vehicles that use the most gasoline not the least. Electrify the pickups and the suvs, the 10 -14 mpg fleet, not the compact sedans getting 25-40 mpg already. I know they have to start somewhere but start plugging the dam at the biggest hole. Perhaps more attention should be on conversions until battery tech improves and prices come down to include bigger vehicles from new. Check out raser Ind at http://www.rasertech.com is doing that starting with the hummer and also doing suvs and pickup trucks getting some good results. I see a converted pickup truck in my future.
