I have to say that I was always of the opinion that electric cars were not practical given current technology and that we would have a long wait to see practical applications.

He addresses issues such as affordability, conveniance and easy access to re-charged batteries – and all with current technology.
For anyone interested in alternative transport possibilities, this is a must see
