Ya - for most of the riding I do, something like that would work fine.
If it had a couple hundred mile range, it could be just charged up at home.

Taking a longer trip wouldn't work though. Availability of charging stations, and the length of time it takes to charge them up would be the limiting factors.
Replacing the battery pack would probably cost a bit too.

I'm a bit surprised that gas/electric hybrids, like currently used in cars aren't being considered.
