I agree. Fully electric cars using so-called "supercapacitors" 
will be filling our streets in years to come.
Mark my words - if fuel prices hit $8.00/gallon, any car company that
can sell an electric car that is as convenient to drive (no lengthy
charge times, no batteries to replace, etc) as a gasoline powered one
will make billions.
Who wants to start up a supercapacitor manufacturing company with me?
