I just did a quick search, it looks like the automakers are fairly actively working on a variety of different energy sources for the propulsion of cars.

We Hear: BMW to use Toyota Hybrid, Hydrogen Powertrains - WOT on Motor Trend

I have to admit, I don't know enough about how batteries work to have a prediction on the future of battery powered cars. Is it reasonably possible that in the future we could develop a battery that weighs 100-200 lbs, could be charged in an hour or less, is recycleable or otherwise ok environmentally, is a reasonable cost and lifespan, and can carry a passenger vehicle 300 miles? Or is that just beyond reality, given the physical limitations of a battery?
