Electric Vehicle - VW exec says current li-ion tech allows for "a halfway decent car"

Now that is an interesting thing to say about an electric vehicle, right? You could say the current technology as is only allows cars to be roughly half of what we are used to (referring to range and charging/fuelling mostly), or alternatively, VW has a nice trick up its sleeve to bring us a fully decent car. What are your thoughts on this?
