Range and Battery
The efficient design allows for a range similar to gas cars without the cost, weight and size of a huge battery bank.
A smaller battery bank and electric motor greatly reduce the cost and weight of the E-Pod without reducing the range or top speed.
The option of a larger motor and battery pack will turn the E-Pod into a fighter Jet like race machine. With the aerodynamic body you need to watch out or you will set a land speed record.
