    Good move! Now to push it into lower cost through volume, upgrade storage capacity or maybe just provide a lot of recharge points to cater for driving after dark, and see to the material in the body. Is Nomex recyclable? Toxic? What is the actual resource trail behind the material? Will we be left with a stockpile of unusable Nomex shells after a a few decades?

Keep tweaking the materials and it’s bound to get better and better.
