The problem isn't so much efficiency, electric cars and even internal combustion are actually fairly efficient, the problem is power. When someone can make a watch battery with the same power in it as a tank of gas or a car that only ways a few grams (including driver and passengers) then it might work.
That's what I was saying, batteries the same size as the watch batteries we have now that can supply upwards of 2000 amps on a 350-400V system to move a car like the White Zombie. Just carry a few of those in your dashboard and pop a new one in every time you need to "refuel."

At the rate at which we are advancing, minus the "Great Depression" we're going through, on top of the Oil Market Fluctuations, it's only a matter of time before something better comes to market. As long as OPEC tried to keep raping us, we'll FIND a way around them.
