I want this to be real, and after a cursory read-through suspect it could very well be. There's enough detail and engineering realism (and lack of investor hype) that this sounds believable. The push is in this direction anyway so it's safe to say we will see this or one similar fast-tracked into production. My hope is that battery and/or other energy storage mediums can progress in parallel with these electric motors. When we start seeing energy densities that compete with petroleum, the push to eradicate fossil fuels will be strong. I would guess the cost of gasoline will become prohibitive once EVs are readily available. The near future will be interesting.

Cleantechnica is a fairly reliable source but the devil is always in the details.
