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.
