No doubt, especially with the insane RPMs an electric motor can spin.

According to what I am seeing from kids today, the next trend is public transportation.

I'll probably make fun of it while secretly liking it. I think we'll also see an urban electric hotrod bicycle culture develop. Lots of room for unregulated unlicensed home brewed speed right there.

Sounds like folks predict we'll start looking more like Europe. I'm generally fine with that.

Man, I loved European public transportation. The ability to go out and not worry about how much you'd been drinking, and still be able to get home just fine was awesome. Doesn't even have to be "I'm going out to get E36 M3 faced!", just "Yeah, I think I'll have a third glass of wine with dinner."
