Electric Vehicle - Around the World in Two Hours

This may sound very SF for an electric vehicle just yet, though for some the EV in the first place is SF and not reality yet (check your local EV dealer and step into the future)

The system under discussion here by Wired could enable high speed personal travel across the globe in a fraction of the current time, just imagine the look on Jules Verne his face if he would find out about this one.
