Battery tech is steadily advancing. Things like gravimetric (weight) and volumetric density, recharge times, and power output are increasing at rate around 10% per year. While this happens, the price is slowly decreasing. Today we have batteries that can charge in less than half an hour, last years of daily use, have great energy density, and are $400 a Kwh. It's a great time to get into EVs!
