Even though the idea of electric vehicles was prominent then, with some prototypes in existence, the major issue was mileage. With the meager coverage it gave, those cars were pretty useless other than for going shopping inside the city. Long drives and top speeds, the very component of thrill and adventure that car enthusiasts love about a drive was missing. There was no adrenaline rush in Battery Electric Vehicles compared to the traditional Internal Combustion Engine counterparts.  That is until, the TESLA ROADSTER unveiled in 2008. This c

It has an electric motor, which these companies also know well. Sony's Vision-S, like other cars now on the drawing board, is meant to fuse seamlessly with a user's mobile phone. The Vision-S's doors can be opened with an app, a feature already found on today's all-electric Teslas.
