The car sounds great. But, A quick question. I read 600 miles on a tank of gas. Believe it was 6-7 gallons. If it only goes forty miles on Batteries then it is going 500+ on gas. Why not leave the batteries out for now and just make the thing without them? I'd buy it and it would have to be a hell of a lot cheaper. I mean 30K with batteries or 20K without is a no brainer. I'm sure theirs a reason that GM doesn't do it. Money being the real reason.
