This weekend I was at Odell's Brewery for one of their fireside chats. The topic was electric cars. Their guest speaker was Tony Posawatz, GM's former front man for electric cars. Odell's served some free pints of Voltage Ale and Tony answered questions from the audience. There were over 100 people there. Tony talked about future "wireless" charging pads where someone could recharge their car in 24 minutes. The cost (MPG) of driving a Chevy Volt is about 75 cents per gallon.
