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.

 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.

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

We take a look at 2015's top engineering schools by salary potential for undergraduate students.
If we are going to be creating a network that serves us, one of its most critical nodes will need to be ourselves. This is where wearable technology comes into play.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
