the way tesla did it in their model s is a killer way to do it, right on the floor.

That might be good as a taxi/uber since that range allows for a good amount of trips before a recharge is required.

Can't see much point really in the e van.
With the good economy we have now with 26 mpg(us gal) about 30 uk gal it's not worth the hassle.
What I would like is to have electric assist on my big Chevy express 1500. If a double or tripple regular battery set up could boost the off the line fuel economy so it does not suck gas getting moving I think it might improve the 12 mpg I get now .....but they will have to test that first. They do have a Trans with a electric motor assist on the side already made.
But that's a different van for a different forum
Right now I really like my 26 mpg and about $25 to fill up to go the same distance that the big van takes $70 to do.

That's exactly my problem with EV's these days and even hybrids, you can find something powered by gasoline that gets better mileage and is cheap to buy and own. To get our dollars they at least need to beat the first part.
