FAQ

  1. Environment – No CO2 emission! Diesel is prohibited to use inside even big spaces because it kills so many people at home with outages
  2. Efficiency – from 4 to 10 times! – 20 mpg vs 120 MPGe. 95% vs 20%. GM Hummer has 12 MPG
  3. Simplicity & Easy Implemintation. Example is self-upgrading and self-driving Tesla. That returned vehicle leadership to US! It is chalenging to implement many thing to ICE vs Electronics is native to electric motor.
  4. Low cost ownership including the fact: EV owner pays mostly for tires versus ICE complicated services
  5. Lifespan: Some electric motors work 24×7 almost 200 years on water pumping stations. It needs just to replace brushes once a year. Modern electric motor is brushless now. First Tesla S has been driven 250,000 miles in harsh Norwegian climate, lost 7%-8% of battery capacity, looks like new and owner paid for tires only during all years. Let say owner will change battery pack after a million miles and it will be almost a new car again. Can ICE car make a milion miles? If yes how much $$ owner will spend for oil and parts replacements? Also do not forget expensive ICE labor. A milion dollar ICE car needs expensive ICE tuning and transmission parts replacement after each harsh drag racing with Tesla. Tesla systems could be analyzed remotely and get maybe a free software upgrade and to race better next time. That is why all milion dolars ICE car loose to Tesla on ‘short’ drag race
  6. El. motor produces peak torque at zero RPM, meaning acceleration figures tend to be stellar! ICE needs max RPM to produce the peak torque.
  7. El. battery pack can be distributed around the EV floor that significantly changes road curving due low center of gravity.
  8. El. motor regenerates energy while EV driving downhill and it does not consume energy while EV has shortstop, eg. on red light. The funny part heavy ICE track consume more energy on downhill because it can not rely on brakes and it breaking down by ICE. Swiss Engineers invented heaviest EV track on Earth. It is so powerful, the charger for it have not been made, yet! How EV works w/o charger!? It means Free Energy! Not exactly – it called gravity at work or transferring potential energy to kinetic one. Loaded track regenerated the same amount of energy while going downhill. This energy is enough to get it back up to the hill to continue those cycles. The mass of an ore is the potential energy and EV computer controls the ore load on the top of mount. Simple physics but even Stanford professor (in particle physics) become very emotional (as happy) after I delivered this news to him!

1. @ Home: use 240V/30A dryer outlet. You need an adapter, that will cost for you about $30-$50 depends from the length
2. On trip:
a. Public EV chargers or samaritans electrical outlets. You need to download an app (e.g. PlugShare) to your mobile phone to find those.
b. Use small electrical generator or Solar Panels with microinverter.
3. In emergency situation: “Only electrician” can connect you to the electrical pole wires using hooks or You can tow your car in drive gear mode with LOW SPEED. The max towing speed of your EV determined by manufacturer! It is the same process of EV power regeneration as you driving downhill.

You are right. It does not convert the electric energy, but it controls the AC current. The EVSE has a computer inside that runs safety J1772 protocol. It is responsible for your and yours EV safety. Eg: You can start to charge your EV with 240V while you standing in water in heavy shower and wind, you are 100% wet! You should not have any fear to be electrocuted while you are wet and you see green safety light is on at any public charger. Also it never overcharge your EV batteries and it increases and decreases amperage according your EV on board computer requirements. Almost any EV on Earth has J1772 protocol for level 1 and 2 overnight charging. The fast chargers are more expensive and incompatible with each other and sometime it is an optional for less expensive EV. You can charge your EV anywhere on earth on any public chargers with J1772 plug versus level 3 fast chargers, those public chargers have different plug for each country even Tesla Superchargers have different plug in each continent. Modern level 3 EVSE have 800VDC dangerous voltage that may instantly ashes any wet human w/o the safety protocol. The safety protocol is checking first – ground, second what did you connect to it and also other things and only after it is recognized the EV and all necessary specification, it turns on itself. If you disconnect a plug the EVSE turns off itself during one millisecond!

No, because It is not just simple wiring adapter. Communications protocols are different for those fast chargers and you need a real time protocol translator based on good processor as a computer processor.
FYI: Tesla Corp. spends a lot of money to create Tesla to Chademo adapter with processor and software inside.

Yes, only once, on mount road uphill. Did not make my destination just by one mile. During the last decade I draw my Nissan Leaf and Toyota RAV4 with NiCd batteries. “Usually, people who stuck w/o gasoline – stuck w/o electric energy!”
