Those are unreasonable. Im not. I would consider one with 10 year warranty (Hyundai does it already) at least 150 mile range on highway, $30K (average car price), and some body styling (like Tesla). That all seems pretty doable to me in the not so far future, except the price thing. What is unreasonable is a butt ugly car that goes 25 miles on a charge that costs $45K....and if you want to go farther its got a gas engine anyway just like the car it would replace....that I already have.
I would have to add one more thing to my requirements. When it runs out of juice you have to be able to refill to 100% capacity in the same time it takes to fill an average tank, and with the same level of convenience.
Also, idiot wasn't the right word. Irrational or insane would have fit better.
