So far, this is Nissan and the Leaf (+ the three other Nissan EV's currently in the pipeline). I like Tesla but they need to do more then just string together thousands of cell phone batteries to make a pack. Until they come up with a higher tech battery and the facilities to produce it, Tesla will be on shaky ground.
When it comes to electric cars, the batteries are EVERYTHING!!! Car companies can ignore this fact at their peril!
Right on, TRONZ....Batteries are, by far, the major component/cost in an EV.
