It will be interesting to see if they can actually roll out some cars.

I am not really sure that electric powered automobiles are the way of the future. But this very attractive car which appears to be loaded with electrically powered ancillary features, either has an extremely large battery power or possibly a very short range. It is the range issue, more than the high price of electric vehicles that is the killer. Few electric cars have a range beyond 200 km which objectively is perfectly satisfactory for nearly all everyday drivers but is normally considered subjectively insufficient.
