EnerDel lithium batteries made right here in the U.S is currently having legal problems with stock holders but their product is very promising. I see that there are some guides to retro fit your gas engine with battery at a reasonable price if you do it yourself and it appears fairly easy. If the car manufacturers were willing to sell the models with the option of without motor so a person could install the electric motor of choice this would be an entire niche market for those who wish to make the parts, install for others, not to mention the jobs installing charging stations, producing batteries, custom options such as electric battery shelves to easily examine batteries. Another option or creation would be that of a solar generator designed for onboard or home use that can transfer reserved power to your vehicle. Grille mounted wind turbines as well as wheel generators like those for lights on our bikes could be explored. I have been working on many designs. Now is the time friends, If a large group of us were willing to sacrafice our time to put something together, we as people would prosper, more important we as a country would benefit. I know I am too old at 52 to dream but I can not stop. Happy Holidays to each of you I respect all of your input, both positive and positive.
