Story about Agassi's company. . . http://www.australianit.news.com.au/story/0,24897,22705901-5013037,00.html Most interesting -- yet puzzling -- is some of the 'expert' commentary. First Felix von Borck noted that most people won't need a battery swap or a recharge away from home on most days. It's a cogent point, I think. However. . . Ferdinand Dudenhoeffer, a German professor and car specialist, was even more emphatic. "All that is very well and good, but batteries for electric cars weigh between 50 and 100 kilograms, you need machines to change them. It is not very realistic," he told the Sueddeutsche Zeitung newspaper. Eh? What's unrealistic about using machines? But wait, it gets better. . . Dudenhoeffer insists that "the electric car is and will remain, a fantasy". The article ends there, without any kind of explanation or justification for that very peculiar remark.
