I admire your faith in institutions, despite Boeing MAX. However, a standardized test is useless, if you let the manufacturer perform it. And there is certainly nothing verified! Weren't there even tweets, where our vaporware master showed off, how he reports what he likes to the EPA?
Well, what is there to license? We know that the weight of an EV is not determined by the engine. The efficiency of an electric motor is anywhere between 93% and 97% (over 99% in very large motors). There are plenty of suppliers (Mahle, ZF, Continental, etc) producing motors for EVs without...
All these EVs are so efficient. On the other side, we know EPA numbers are garbage. They do not follow a standardized and verified test protocol. Therefore, the range numbers above are meaningless.
I need to know
battery net capacity
Then practical range is...
Well, it's smart. Cosy up to the T fanboys for show, but when he is back in the office, he looks at the numbers and worries about chip shortage and about how to compete in the Chinese market - his money printing press.
In theory you have drag losses, because the moving magnet produces a current inside the motor which shows up as a voltage on the outside. If the wire is cut, the current stops, but voltage persists.
Practically, the motor is always connected so you have to handle the power in your power...
I kind of totally ignored this thread, not interested in racing.
But when you look at it like this with the EV headlights design and reading, that Porsche is practicing for the electric version of the 911... :idea: Well that could be exciting indeed!
Depends on the type of motor. The PSM (in Taycan) is most efficient particularly in low speeds, but creates a current running idle. Since you have a gear translation by adding a clutch you might as well add one more translation.
