"Zero says the lithion-ion power pack weighs in at 45 pounds and has a capacity of 2 kWh, good for 40 miles on a two-hour charge."

At what speed? 18mph?

Let's see now...ah, here it is, standard Lefty spiel.." No more Nuke plants, no more coal fired plants, knock down hydro-electric dams to save fish, no wind turbines because they make noise and kill birds, no drilling in ANWR becuase Caribou will have to duck when they walk under the pipeline... everybody has to drive electric vehicles to save the world, just plug them into the wall socket and charge them up"........

(hey, how come the powers out again?, somebody call the electric company and complain!!) ........

If you're interested in the Zero X, check back with us next week for a test of the '08 model.

Sorry, no, as the article is already written (and not by me...). Also, the recharge costs would vary widely between providers in each state. However, it is a salient point, so it's something we should discuss in the future.
