Hey! Good to hear from you again!

So, I still don't see where you have described the processes carbon fuels produce that lead to our ultimate demise. Did I miss it somewhere?

Are you actually trying to push some climate change religion? I don't even know what you're on about! I'm not a psychologist, but I may or may not have played one on TV.

I'm going to assume for a moment that you are a bit of a petrol head.

So what happens if you strip a car/bike engine down as far as the crankshaft, then replace that crankshaft (say four pistons, 200 BHP) with a crankshaft powered by four DC electric motors (200 BHP as before).
Attach this new crankshaft directly onto the existing gearbox and transmission system.
Remove the liquid fuel tank and replace it with a battery bank which, like a cows stomach, contains four different chemical compositions of battery (so as to avoid the over use of precious/rare chemicals), each used to it's maximum potential dependent upon temperature and voltage variations within the battery bank.
This battery bank will be charged from the mains initially, but will be trickle charged on the move by locating generators on the drive shafts and wind turbines mounted within the air flow of the battery bank cooling system.

Like the sound of that?

It's called making a positive contribution to the problems we now face.
Building an EV that is better than ICE.
It's called progress guys, it doesn't have to be painful.
It could be a lot of fun, but for some reason you guys want to stay as we are! Why?

How long does it take to refuel an electric vehicle?

How long does it take to refuel a gasoline vehicle?

Can you think of any instances in which the MUCH shorter refueling time is not only convenient, but is absolutely essential (with regard to efficiency/time savings/etc)?


BTW, if you're looking for a good laugh, search on YouTube for videos of people attempting to fuel up their Tesla vehicles at gas stations.

1) If it has the same or more horse power, cost the same or less to buy it, and I can charge it faster than I can fill it, fine. I'm all for it. Great. Go make it and we will buy it. It's called capitalism.

2) You are swerving dangerously close to chasing perpetual motion.

3) You still have not defined the problem.

Anyway I think they've been using AC Motors!

In a 20 car pile up with, lets say 6 AC inverters buried in the carnage, at what point does it become safe for the fire brigade to start spraying water around?

No one is using AC Motors anymore on new vehicles. Too risky.

But the Volvo prototype looks like be able to crack the 400km per charge barrier.

I need a range of 300 miles per charge pulling a 10,000 lb. load. Others will need more....much more. How much snow can I move on a single charge?

Well it (like ICE vehicles) is all about weight.

Volvo and Jaguar Landrover have only had this info. for a few months. Lets wait and see what they come up with.

Theoretically, you can power anything from a moped to an aircraft carrier with electric motors, but you've got to get power to weight ratio right.

Currently I think Volvo are trying to match the power of the original ICE vehicle and see how far they can get, without using up too much of this precious chemical battery element that people are already moaning about.

Basically, you don't actually know much about the technical details. The mechanics, the physics, the electronics involved. Gas and electric are two different beasts, providing the same work of transportation. ICE is a mature technology, over a hundred years of refinement. EV has been around a long time too, but struggles to overcome a lot of limitations. ICE is vastly superior to EV in most every way, that's why it's the popular choice, and likely to stay that way. EV is a hip and trendy, proof of concept thing, if you can afford to play that silly game.

Since it's winter time, you should be starting to notice the strain on the electric grid, as the severe weather comes and goes. How are people going to charge their vehicles, during power outages? Won't that sort of contribute to the already stress power grid, the entire year?

I'm not picky about what I drive, long as it's dependably, and cheap. My 2003 Ford Explorer P.O.S. Edition cost me only $1,000. Not my first choice in vehicles, but not many affordable options at the time. President Obama ran a scam, to get people to by brand new, gas efficient cars. He paid people to scrap their gas guzzlers enough for a down payment. The used cars had to be scrapped though. Most could afford payments on a new car, and got repossessed. They ended up, with a worse car, than what they had to begin with. Cheap cars for me, hard to find. I'll drive anything I can fit into, doesn't matter what it looks like, or features. My SUV never had functioning heat or AC, which often sucks, windows fog up... But, it gets me to work, and home. There won't be $1,000 EV cars, that'll replace ICE for my transportation needs. The battery costs more than that.

The work function of different types of batteries are different. One or two cells well take all the load while the others do nothing but act like a resistor. Further, the battery will have to provide at least 300 amps of current at 500v. Unmatched cells cannot do this, and a battery pack the size of a fuel tank is incapable of this kind of current and voltage requirements. Further, no battery exists with an internal resistance that low.

To replace it when the battery wears out or is damaged, a special lift is needed, as a typical car lift is in the way of dropping the battery out from the underside of the car.

Well it (like ICE vehicles) is all about weight.

No. Like any vehicle it's about weight to power ratio.

Volvo and Jaguar Landrover have only had this info. for a few months. Lets wait and see what they come up with.

They don't have anything yet.

Theoretically, you can power anything from a moped to an aircraft carrier with electric motors, but you've got to get power to weight ratio right.

Only if you want a sitting duck for an aircraft carrier and far less room for crew, aircraft, and equipment and no range. Aircraft carriers today are nuclear powered.

Currently I think Volvo are trying to match the power of the original ICE vehicle and see how far they can get, without using up too much of this precious chemical battery element that people are already moaning about.

What? Lithium? Volvo is planning on using Li-ion batteries.

Too bad there just isn't enough lithium in mine-able quantities in the world to build EV's for everyone.
Oh, and don't forget the cobalt, the manganese, and the nickle you are going to require (and there isn't enough of).
