I do hope that the "speeds" at which the car traveled in the video are
not representative of the best it can do. In the U.S. the driver would
almost certainly be run over and killed on the first commute. Sadly and
ironically, it might be a Prius that ran over him.

Here's the prize, Toyota: 1000 km @ 120 kph, eight-hour charge. 2000 km
@ 60 kph, eight-hour charge. Charge-time and distance relationship to
be linear. (It doesn't have to be able to go 500 km @ 240 kph.) Be
prepared for the anti-monopoly actions, as you would put every other
maker out of business.
