LiOn batteries powered hybrids is a short term solution. Super Capacitors are a much better solution once they get the recipe right.

And, they can be recharged in seconds/minutes. Not exactly sure thats feasible with household voltage/current, but I'm sure that will be dealt with in due time.

Here's one article discussing a recent super cap breakthrough.

Tesla seems to be headed towards Super Capacitors.
