This is a great product! I especially like the diesel generator. I suggest you sell an accessory with the car. A solar charging station. It should be very simple to engineer and build. I imagine one at home and one at work. At each location, I could charge the batteries while the car sits. Maybe even a convential on-the-grid plug at the station for those cloudy days. And even a feed back to the house or business to dump electric back onto the grid when the car is not pluged in.

Also, I like the technology of the hybrids using the breaking mechnisim to generate electric to charge the batteries, do you have that on this car?

I drive 40 miles each day to work and back, this would be the ideal car!!
