If any of you are wondering why Electric cars are not popular, you must watch the movie from Sony Pictures called "Who kiled the electric car"
Who Killed the Electric Car? - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Actually there is something like that. i remember reading in an auto mag that Brabus has come out wit a kit for the Tesla roadster called a Space Sound Generator which stimulates the sound of a petrol engine, one can switch between the sound of a muscle car, sports car, etc.

Found this Excellent Write up which brings the future of EV's to sight .
Check it out. Worth a read

Having heard so much good about petrol cars, we decided to test drive one. They are said to combine cheap price with long range and fast charging. A winning formula on paper – but how are they in real life?

We sat us in the loaner car at the car salesman’s office. Automakers do not sell the cars themselves, only through independent car repair shops as middlemen. It may sound like a bad omen to buy the car from a car repair shop that you want to visit as seldom as possible. But you apparently can’t buy the car directly from the manufacturer but must go through such intermediaries. The seller was very ”pushy” and tried to convince us to buy the car very forcibly, but the experience is perhaps better elsewhere.
