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.

We shared our list, now Design News readers tell us which artificial intelligence movies they watch again and again.
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
Researchers have simplified the fabrication of the geometric requirements for fluid motion in microrobots for in vivo medical applications.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s recently announced plan to put an electric airplane in the air by 2018 is forward-looking, but hardly unique.
