Since electric motors have instantaneous torque, the ability to create a top performing drag racer has been known for a long time. You don't even have to be in an exotic to observe that. My friend's Tesla was an ample demonstration.In addition, its hard to overcome physics. The batteries are heavy. So, probably fast in a straight line, but when you try to turn or stop…
They'll get better and better. But I still don't want one. Where's the rumble?
We're looking at an 800-ish mile drive from Vegas to Colorado. We do it in one day. An EV would take 3. I'm interested in an EV for city driving, and I think the electric F150 is brilliant for contractors that work close to the job site but for long distances there is not a solution yet. There will no doubt be some day.
The rumble comes from speakers. You can get whatever sound you want. Amerian V8 or Ferrari V12.
I recall one EV that outside sounds so the vehicle could be heard after pedestrians in parking lots were terrorized by silent EVs... I don't recall the source of that old wive's tale or when it was supposed to have happened but it was a while ago "early days"...
Oh lord no! Piped-in engine noise!
I thought this concept was already proposed or tried...I am guessing that the nearest term solution will be driving into a fuel station and dropping the battery pack out and getting a new one. Sort of like a propane tank exchange concept. It will be like when you swap batteries on your cordless tool. The station recharges the batteries and gives to next customer. But I am no expert and love to drive long distances (quickly) so not in line for an EV anytime soon.
