If this does not get you charged up...I don't know what will ?

Envia claims its new battery technology is more than 50 percent cheaper than current generation electric car batteries, costing around $125 per kilowatt-hour.

Nissan Leaf was replaced with a pack made of Envia cells -- and we assume that the weight of all the non-battery cell components of the pack remain the same weight -- it would store almost 61 kilowatt-hours of energy.

ok off topic, but how is it that you have a delivery date of "today" and you list that the car has been repainted Corvette Bronze?

Companies have been making claims like this for years. EESTOR anyone?

Until they actually demonstrate it, its vaporware in my book.

Of course, we have been seeing claims like this for decades, almost all of which never went anywhere... Time will actually tell.

If Nissan was smart, they would offer 150 mile replacement packs at a decent price for those us who feel that paying for and carrying around extra capacity is a waste of money.

i am all for options and it would be great if Nissan offered replacements of 150 and 250 mile packs but i think they probably wont.

I guess this is technically off-topic, but since you brought it up, if this happens far too often to count, maybe that says you need to create a new sub-board specifically dedicated to battery technology. I personally don't mind a new thread for each new type of technology that is announced, and by putting into a sub-board (if that's the right terminology) you could sufficiently hide it from people that don't know how to use the site effectively.
