I, too, like the Sadoway Rule, Jim_T. With a few minor exceptions, it has held up amazingly well since I first heard about it in 1998.

Glad you mentioned that, Charles, - That was the very first thing that occurred to me, after reading the "Sadoway Rule," where a battery needs approximately 1 Wh/kg to go one mile.  --  I thought, "OK, a giant battery, in a 2-seater".  Made me think of the earliest wood and coal burning locomotives of the early 1800's.  90% furnace and a tiny little cockpit!  How funny everything starts out; but luckily evolves.

Battery predictions have always been notoriously unreliable. As much as GM would probably like to start taking orders for their 200-mile cars, there's still a lot of test that has to be done.

GM should start hyping a 200-mile battery for its cars. It would stimulate interest that is lacking now. Make a switch program, a Volt now, trade-in, get a 20-0-mile car next.

Thanks CharlesM, real life experience is always better than speculation.

Agreed, William K. I know I've never owned a car that got less than 200 miles of range per tank. And I can't remember owning one that got less than 300 miles.

@Charles: Hmm yes people will not want to pay more when there are alternatives around.

@William: We in the 3rd world experience a totally different scenario. There are loads of traffic at anytime of the day and the cost of fuel too is really high. I think you guys are really liucky

Anandy, I have owned quite a few cars and all of them would get at least 200 miles on a tankful, unless I was caught in a traffic jam a lot of the time. Not always much over 200 miles for some, but on my Caravan it is over 300Miles of open road.

The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
