Several auto companies including VW and GM have hinted at bringing a 200 mile range $30-35k car to market.
This is what the "gen 3" car was supposed to be. The model X won't deliver until 2016 according to the Tesla site, and the Gen 3 car a year after that.
Late to the party.

Airtube transport was proposed in underground Manhattan before the electric subway Something tells me that it may have been actually been put into use. Transportation history was most of my life 40 years ago, little since.

Here's a 19th century version powered by steam engine. It was used for mail but big enough to transport people.
