CNN Reporting possible end to car batteries?

CNN is reporting on a story of interest to alternative energy buffs:

An Austin-based startup called EEStor promised "technologies for replacement of electrochemical batteries," meaning a motorist could plug in a car for five minutes and drive 500 miles roundtrip between Dallas and Houston without gasoline.

According to CNN, a Toronto firm called ZENN Motor Co has licensed the EEStor invention:

"It's a paradigm shift," said Ian Clifford, "The Achilles' heel to the electric car industry has been energy storage. By all rights, this would make internal combustion engines unnecessary."

What do you believe?
