The big advantage is that the liquid electrolyte can be changed out in a few minutes to recharge the battery!

This is the first battery technology that sort of makes practical sense to me.

Ok, maybe I just missed it, but what will this car cost? And who will be able to afford it?

No mention of cost, however, trickle down is inevitable. This electrolyte technology will be a great benefit in other uses as well!

I'll wait until some 3rd party test drive. The marketing video is silly....like they sped up the frame rate. Looks fake to me.

I am pretty sure that the video is cgi. However they are supposedly testing soon!
