Popular Mechanics just spent a bit of time with the "Stealth Motorcycle." This all-electric motorcycle is powered 100% by lithium ion batteries and can be charged with any wall socket. Though the max speed of 50 mph makes the current model good only for city driving, it's exciting for two reasons.
First, because I live next to a fairly busy street and thus love the idea of a quiet motorbike. And second, because it looks, for all the world, like a regular vehicle. It didn't hop off the pages of a Manga, it isn't bright green or yellow. It looks an awful lot like a regular motorcycle. It shouldn't be an innovation to be excited about, but it's about time electric vehicles started looking normal. ]
