Electric vehicles are becoming an extremely common sight for many people. Whether it’s seeing a shiny new Tesla lower the road, or hopping on a light rail train or renting an electric scooter to get from that train to your dwelling, EVs are everywhere.

One problem with electrical motors is that because of the speeds at which they rotate, to be useful generally in most vehicles, they need a gear reduction gadget. I’d call it a transmitting, but generally, these gearboxes only have one rate. This takes the 10,000 rpm from a drive motor and reduces the quickness at the tires while multiplying torque.

What if there have been a electric motor that didn’t have to spin as fast as that to create enough usable power and torque to drive a car? If that existed, you could change all types of gear reduction motor things about electric car design. If you didn’t require a gearbox, you’ll save a good-size chunk of weight and, probably even more crucially, space.

With that space, you could raise the size of your battery pack, and with the reduced weight, you’ll improve all sorts of things such as handling, range and acceleration.
