Annybody see the segment about electric/hybrid vehicles on the History channel's "Tactical to Practical"? They presented this goofy little car called the Tzero. It runs on LiIon laptop batteries and propels itself through AC motors at each wheel. They actually raced it against a Viper on that show and, surprisingly, it beat the poor snake's doors off....in a short race. Obviously the thing would never keep up with an IC engined car in a longer/higher speed race. But that low end torque is impressive....and all from laptop batteries! They have a website http://www.acpropulsion.com but you can't buy one just yet....however they say "It will be priced between Porsche and Ferrari."
I personally think the little thing is ugly, but it's sure....hmmm, what's the word.....innovative.
