@Rick: Why Electric Cars Are Safer

@Rick: now that I see the way Model-S mounts its batteries, I have to wonder how the idea of a battery switch station would work in this case? Could this have been one of the points of contention between Tesla and the now defunct Better Place?

...or a new battery tech. I think a lot of money is exploring alternative chemistries.

Kudos to Tesla for the saftey achievements. Gold star for doing that in a car packing so much lithium ion.

But the big kahuna is finding a way to get the weight and price down.

It is always so frustrating to hear people saying that electric will never displace petrolium fuelled vehicles. The latest batch is just a taste of what is to come. Safer, faster, more stable, and quieter.
