I presume that all TV's use regenerative braking. How about hybrids ? Has anyone used magnetic/eddy current braking ?

 That's really a respectable range, and the article was quite detailed too.  It made me want to work there.  I know the cost is still rather high, but the engineers at Tesla are working each problem and finding solutions.

Tesla key was working with AC Propulsion as JB did.They made the T-ZERO and could go 300 miles on a charge with small lithium batteries. They designed the AC Controller, AC motors and battery configuration.

QUOTE=Straubel joined Tesla at the ground-floor level in 2004 after stints at Rosen Motors, which built hybrid powertrains for cars, and after attempting to start his own company aimed at creating electric airplanes. Before arriving at Tesla, he also worked with Stanford colleagues on a solar vehicle racing team and kept in touch with friends at AC Propulsion, which built an electric sports car capable of going from 0 to 60 mph in under four seconds. No matter what Straubel did, electric propulsion was always at the core.
