Earlier battery shortcomings was the bugaboo, that's why the electrics faded 120 or so years ago.
They have up till now been hard to handle.
A couple of half hearted attempts ...

But it always came down to the batteries.
Even the golf cart I used everyday at work would drive me nuts sometimes...
and sometimes me nuts would have to walk.

Then Tesla (Inc as opposed to Nikola) took better materials, found the best way to assemble them,
and most importantly developed computer controls to fine tune everything.
Remember they went to the moon and back on less computing power than your phone has?
Now computing power is plentiful and cheap.

If you could go ahead and electrify a CJ that'd be ok by me.

How long, do you think, before the Indy500 goes electric - or is motorsport destined to just peter out and die?

Motorsport won't die, there are examples of crazy competitions right now that aren't the fastest or the newest of all. All the competitions have arbitrary rules, even Indy cars. There's already a Formula E, but it hasn't caused the extinction of Formula 1 etc.

Electrics are not a replacement, they're an addon.

Got something against mixed race vehicles?
Oh, just reminding them they're not pure like the white ones eh.
Make sure they stay in their separate but equal (except not paved) parking lot.

Remember electricity is dangerous...
