Without pointing fingers... from what I think I am hearing that there is a lot of changes/discoveries (both good and bad) going on over the electric motor thing. For on road cars supposedly the rest stops are supposedly going to have charging stations (will the charging station be required to wear a mask ) that should recharge the batteries within a fairly short period of time which doesn't do off-roaders much good. Also, will the state and fed off-road sites do this also and how much "gouging" will be done ?chuckput wrote: ↑Mon Feb 22, 2021 2:00 pmThey have an EV Class at the Pike's Peak Hill climb and they have to haul large, commercial generators up there to insure the EVs are fully charged prior to the start. I still think that for recreational EV vehicles like a buggy, the manufactures will need to develop an interchangeable battery pack similar to what is used in power tools to be usable and successful. You can bring 2 or 3 batteries and charge one while out driving. Yes, the use of a gas or diesel generator to charge your batteries does negate the green aspect of EVs, but there aren't too many options out there. It could be argued that a generator uses less fuel and emits less pollutants than many vehicles running off road currently.
(https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Electric_vehicle_battery) Some current info on they batteries electric off-road batteries might be using.
(https://www.bing.com/images/search?q=el ... BasicHover) Images of current electric vehicle batteries that we might be using (at least a starting look as I am sure that the batteries will change) which means that our off-road vehicle designs (and weight) will most likely change in several ways.
Getting to be an interesting subject for sure.

Just ran into this.
