    This is where I have purchased 6 Prius's. This is where the Noble Peace Prize lives due to the Binghamton U Professor's research on the Lithium Ion Battery.(just awarded) Its that research that has made electric cars possible. I now work here and can give you advice based on 12 years of ownership. Please call ,or text before you buy your next one. If in the NY or PA area.

    Please tell me what the Nobel Peace Prize has to do with a lithium ion battery, or is that just salesman talk?

    'nobel prize in chemistry'

    my one concern is that of the 3 researchers, one is named 'goodenough'

    I believe that what he is trying to say is that somebody associated with SUNY Binghamton won a Nobel (presumably in chemistry) for work that helped to make Li-Ion batteries possible.

    Guess the OP didn't realize that electric cars have been around since the late 1800's and were actually quite popular at the time.

    And, more importantly, does the Nobel Laureate work on them? Heck, he lives "there" so he better not be...... resting on his laurels. ;)

    Any town that has a Nobel laureate should be proud.
