    news coming....

    Is one motor set up for middle to high speed and one for low to middle speed? They have different drive ratios?
  2. That one that broke down is not a production car though right? I think that is what the article said.

    Amazon buying 100k Rivian Vans

    Well I’m learning something on the handles. Gas stations will go the way of stables for horses? Seems like most charging will be done at home, work or hotel though. I was in DC recently and the hotel parking had chargers. I could do 90% + of my charging from home. Even when I was working.

    New light & medium duty news

    I had been researching how BEV trucks would perform. Towing for instance. The Tesla Model X can tow but needs recharging much more frequently. It doesn’t have a transmission but the motor’s are geared differently each with it’s own speed band. I think I understand that correctly. Anyway this helps with low and high speed performance. It seems a transmission would be needed for towing. I searched BEV transmission and found that article.
