Subject: RE: BS: electric cars, when....?
Diesel electric has been a standard in UK trains for what seems to be forever. The Top Gear team under Jeremy Clarkson made one and, of course, it wasn't a thing of beauty. It would enable an electric car to travel more than fifty miles, and it would allow a viable heater in winter but it would be a polluter, it would have to have a fuel tank and a radiator, a starter motor, all the stuff that an electric motor doesn't need.

The hydrogen fuel cell is the answer. It's obvious.
