I know they keep talking one day-electric in everyones driveway. But what I've been reading on them states that they for the most part will only go like 250 miles between charges. Why can't they make these cars self charging? I know in todays gas powered cars we use alternators to recharge the 12 v. batterys. Why don't they design alternators that can recharge the batteries in a battery powered car? Or what is the drawback of this being incorporated in them? I'm lost as to why this has not been done. Is there a design flaw in the batteries on these cars that they can't drive and charge at the same time? Any ideas-I really don't see where the problems would be.
I can see where smaller battery might be able to used if you could charge the car as its driven. Plus cutting down on the cars total weight.
