"Not all of the official specs have been released, but the Pius does have an electric range of 15 miles and a top speed of 21 mph."
Wouldn't even make to work with that range.
Nevermind making it to work. There isn't a single road I could take to work that I'd even think of only driving 21mph on.
Hell, the road I live on is 35, which means everyone is doing 45.
The biggest technical hurdle to electric cars right now (but by no means the only one), is the battery tech. Energy densities really need to increase by at least an order of magnitude. There's a lot of research being done on the problem, and there's some promising looking options coming out of it (lithium/air, and flouride), but we're probably a decade or two away from having the necessary capacities to make electric cars an economically competitive option to fossil fuel vehicles.
