Electric Vehicle - The sky is the limit?

The people at Wired have taken a ride in a very special electric vehicle: an airplane! Now it is actually "just" an ultralight, but electric flight has to start somewhere, right?

Flying will never be the same once this gets broadly used; no more noise, vibration or fumes from the engine! Just the sound of the air passing the plane and the soft whine of the electric motor. It sounds like how most people describe a ride in an electric car, though a tad more spectacular ofcourse since it is up in the air. No room for range anxiety here mind!
