Oh, yessir. Supercapacitors are already on their way to plugin hybrids, if I understand the A123 unit correctly.

And other things are in the works.

If there's a way to do away with the battery altogether and just use supercapacitors on the cheap, I'm all for it.

A123 cells are all battery,
they don't sully it with a capacitor :p

they have been available through back door means for a while now.

this is a test on various high power LiFePO4 cells from a few years ago:
