This is amazing news for electric car fans as they are THE MOST important technology for our nations future. I'm just disgusted that so much money is going to the big 3.... General Motors built the GM EV-1, an electric vehicle with similar performance to that Obama is talking about, over 10 years ago. But GM sold the patents to the powerful NiMH batteries to Chevron Oil. Why are they getting $200 million to rebuild the wheel? It's wrong.
