Observer11:

The answers to two of your questions are right there on the first page of the web site:

Range: 15-30 Miles (winter), 35-50 Miles (summer).
Charge time:  10-12 hours

There is no imeediate reference to charge voltage and current, but I'll bet it's in there somewhere.

Very nice. I looked into building an electric car but the ecology of it is not great. The car would 'consume' 2-3 lb of lead acid batteries to drive 50 miles. That is, the 900 lb battery pack would last 300 charges.

How much energy is needed to build 3 lb of lead acid battery?  

The energy for the car comes from coal fired plants, hence it is a coal powered car.

Well, you've got to admit that the guy built the car.  If an individual can do it why can't a large team of auto engineers?  Where there's a will there's a way and if there is no will, there are excuses.

I think Buffet's investment in the China electric car product will drive (pardon the pun) competition world wide.  Till then we can put our radios in 12v electric system cars and we won't have to worry about the 48v or 100v rigs of the future.
