"A German-based company has changed all that with a new vehicle capable of driving up to 375 miles at moderate highway speeds. That’s roughly the equivalent of driving from Santa Barbara, CA to the Hoover Dam, without a recharge. It doesn’t end there. The company responsible for the battery pack, DBM Energy, claims a battery pack efficiency of 97 percent and a recharge time of around 6 minutes when charged from a direct current source." | more

Sounds brilliant, but just because it recharges in about 6 minutes doesn't mean it 'sucks' less power than for example that tesla thing that recharges in about 10 hours I think =/

I love the technology(and the car's quite nice) of the Honda FCX Clarity, that's very cheap to run and completely clean because it runs off Hydrogen(and yeah it is safe).

I would love it so much and I've been hoping that this goes global, it's a shame that every Country's governments are not 'investing' in this so it can go global.

That's excellent. Now they need to improve the technology so you can drive that far at interstate highway speeds. There's also the problem with implementing something like this in vehicles like 4x4 pickup trucks that need a lot of power to do what they do.
