That is indeed its strong point.
But it also is its most difficult accomplishment.

Making an electric car (what I mean is: the electric drive) isnt difficult at all, we could do that in the 60's. A normal tramcart has an electric motor thats about 14x16" and makes 700hp.
The difficult part is finding the energy source that is small enough, has enough stamina and is easily/fast replenishable. Thats what all the research is about. not the electric motor.
