Battery car smokes!

This car looks pretty cool, a Wire News article claims it can go 250 miles.

The Tesla Roadster is powered by 6,831 rechargeable lithium-ion batteries — the same cells that run a laptop computer. Range: 250 miles. Fuel efficiency: 1 to 2 cents per mile. Top speed: more than 130 mph. The first cars will be built at a factory in England and are slated to hit the market next summer. And Tesla Motors, Eberhard’s company, is already gearing up for a four-door battery-powered sedan.

I really like the fact that people are making alternative “cool” looking cars however I am not sure if 6K of batteries is the answer…
