>Tesla has a fancy new electric roadster that get 244 miles on a single charge. Sweet! It also looks like a real sports car and not some hulking imitation. Also, you can fully charge the battery in less than four hours – http://www.teslamotors.com/. This could pose some problems if you are driving across the country but most trips are well under 244 miles. Such cars could be the start of a trend toward the personal transportation of the future. Since we are wedded to our cars and the way of life they provide, electric cars are a logical way to move forward as petroleum resources become scarce. By the way, the Tesla roadster goes from 0-60 in 3.9 seconds. Talk about moving forward.
