Finally great innovative idea in the EV world...body of the car as a battery...what a wonderful technology (when deployed)!

True!! This looks to be a breakthrough in the EV world. The message in the video is very convincing for me to think this to be the next big thing!! Looks like everything is an advantage...15% weight reduction resulting in lower power requirement is an added advantage. Also liked the idea of replacing the battery by the super-capacitor sheet made with carbon fiber material. The only thing not known is the cost...affordability?

I think that eventually, such technology will have to become pretty common in many battery-powered devices. Tablets could benefit from it. Phones could. And, of course, cars. Size and weight are such critical factors in many devices that the next logical step is to start building the battery into the structure.

Yes!  Great out of the box thinking for the box itself! If they could add solar panel kind of surface on the outside of this car body battery then this will also become a self charging battery when being driven in the sunshine!

Great idea, but must design replacement into the plan

Being a system engineering, I find a lot of great ideas that do not design repair into the equation.  I hope they either, ensure that the battery has a lifetime beyond that of the car or create a way to replace them if they go defunct before their end of life.
