Uh... so how fast does it go? Y'know, in normal numbers?
The *real* question is "How FAR does it go on a charge?" Which is followed closely by a related question "How long does it take to recharge?"
Having high acceleration and top speed are nice, but if you only get 40 miles from a full charge which takes 4 hours to achieve, what's the point? It might be interesting for the race track, but as a practical means of transportation it's useless to 90% of us.
I know this is slashdot and nobody reads the article, but seriously... read the article. It's in there.
