Electric cars: Little juice coupes (Why would you call an electric car a juice coupe??)

Everyone thought that the electric car was dead in the 1990s.  Yet it is charging up for a comeback.
A handful of automotive giants and start-ups are racing to bring to market a mass-produced electric vehicle free from the limitations that doomed previous efforts.

The next 18 months figure to be critical in determining whether the electric car is a viable alternative to internal combustion or just more science fiction.

General Motors announced it would bring the electric car back to showrooms as soon as 2010. But a smaller companies, some backed by A-list technology investors, intend to beat GM to market by putting cars on the road as soon as this year.

The momentum is part of a wider trend toward using electricity to help power vehicles.
