the use of capacitors makes a lot of sense. a brief, high energy release since no sustained capacity of any magnitude is needed for the demonstration.

sadly, the technology of electric drive and management of propulsion does make a lot of sense in terms of efficiency. however, he made a deal with the devil by making his arguments anti-combustion. dump the batteries and have generation motors using some liquid fuel, gasoline or diesel, maybe natural gas, and these would be incredibly efficient and fun vehicles. if i felt like burning up money, i would buy one used and figure out some way to install an engine solely for the purpose of generating the electrical power and keep the rest of the car stock. there might have to be some mild capacitance for regenerative braking and load buffering, but it would really make Musk look like **** as i get amazing mileage in one of his cars using gasoline.
