    Thanks mrflora nice find, still five years away though.

    I wonder how much oxygen the battery will need in a day?

    To get over the nitrogen problem it might be possible to drive with a cylinder of liquid oxygen, which you can either recharge at home or exchange at a garage.

    I get conflicting data about the availability of lithium, whether it will be necessary to extract it from seawater?

    Maybe their solvent discovery could help with the sodium oxygen battery?

    Most Lithium comes from salt deposits in Chile - at the moment.

    Because LOX is such a fun thing to play with and is, oh, so safe!

    They could put the cylinder in the rear bumper, and call the vehicle a Pinto.

    It would be accurate if the cylinder was made in two halves bound together with sticky tape.

    (I once owned a Pinto. Horrible little car.)

    A friend of mine told me she had painted her Pinto in Blue Angels colors and nicknamed it "The Flame".

    The Germans lost the war due to a Pinto, don'tcha know. They were driving their top military strategist to a secret bunker when...

    Engineers are talking about fuel cells to power cars fuelled by liquid hydrogen, liquid oxygen should be safer than that especially as it is regularly transported by lorries to hospitals and factories.

    I liked when the heroes got in the staff car a few minutes later and drove it off. "The Germans really know how to build cars!"

    The dubbed in (stock) sound of tires squealing on pavement was also fun... considering the car was driving on grass.
