Also, some details about vehicles and plans should remain confidential for reasons of competition, which is the norm at such events. Continue reading
1. Minimum engine options maximum power configurations
The biggest advantage of electric vehicle manufacturers is the easily variable power inherent in electric motors.
The manufacturer can produce only a few motors, but offer up to 30 different transmission options. In short, “horsepower”, which is not the correct definition for electric motors, can be adjusted, that is, one motor can have several power options.
In turn, the manufacturer of cars with ice, to offer similar variability and be able to compete, must spend money on the development and creation of a much larger number of engines, with each engine will need its own production and Assembly line, while the manufacturer of electric vehicles is satisfied with the simplicity of design and savings on Assembly due to the smaller size of the electric motor.

Electric vehicles that you can buy are a relatively new product on the market. Hybrid cars that combine a conventional petrol or diesel engine with an electric motor have been around for a long time.
Gasoline-electric cars like the Toyota Prius or the new RAV4 hybrid aren’t technically electric cars because they can’t be plugged in and charged from an external source. They have very low-capacity batteries, and the electric motor is designed to help a conventional engine, rather than drive the car yourself.
Hybrids (HEV) charge their batteries, restoring energy that is usually lost during braking and deceleration, and sometimes directly from a gasoline engine. Continue reading
