It's a great idea but the main problem for this, and all electric vehicles for that matter, is the batteries. They are expensive to produce and
don't last nearly long enough for the price. It was touched on an episode of Top Gear though...
Instead of hauling around all these lbs of batteries why don't we have wireless charging through the roadway? We already have wireless charging for
cell phones. It would obviously take vision and technological improvements to charge/power cars moving down the road at 60 mph, but I think it can be
done. I feel it's the only real viable electric cars.
You start in the big cities first, laying down the necessary equipment when resurfacing/repairing roads and after enough investment has taken place
the market can take over. Stopping for 5 min to gas up can be a pain but worse is having to charge for 8-12 hours for a "full tank." If you could
charge your car while driving it, well that would be a no-brainer to me.
Then you just have to make electricity more efficiently and cleaner than our current coal fueled electric grid.
