Great article in Wired on new battery technologies being developed for electric vehicles leads me to discover something I really, really want (but can’t afford): the new Lightning GT. A British-built electric supercar. 700hp through motors in each wheel, 0-60mph in about 4 seconds, 250 mile range, and thanks to Altairnano’s nanotech re-engineering of lithium batteries, a 10 minute recharge time. Snag? The Â£150,000 cost. Even with the NZ dollar soaring, that’s not far short of $400,000. And only two seats.
