Nevertheless, one big question arises: where will we get from the enormous amount of electrical power needed to charge the batteries in case of mass utilization of this kind of vehicles? If the energy source still is burning fossil fuels, then the results (in terms of overall efficiency and CO2 emissions) might even be worse than using the old internal combustion engine...
