Some electric cars r slow, but with the help of new technology like frequancy drives and Li-ion batteries they r faster and more efficient then gas, diesel or hybrid cars
p.s. Tesla roadster goes 0-60 in les then 4 sec, top speed 130+mph and gets 200 plus miles to a charge and it take less then $3.00 to charge the batteries, one thing I hate is the price.

Well, they're eventually aiming to come down to the $50-$60K range...which means in 10 years we may be talking about modifying batteries and voltage, not cams and turbochargers.

There is a large group of amp heads already out there doing this, and they have their own drag racing association in the US. They are also on tv once in awhile. As it becomes more mainstream and battery technology advances you will see more commerical electric car efforts seeing the light of day.

Speaking of electric cars, I saw an eBox electric today driving over the Burrard bridge onto Pacific Boulevard. It is an electric conversion of the Scion xB.

At a cost of US$55K above the price of the xB that is an expensive environmental statement to make. If you want a working and reliable electric vehicle I'd pick up a Chevy S10 electric conversion. Much lower technology with DC motor and lead acid batteries, but it works!
