Surprised nobody has yet posted an article on this: http://www.greencarreports.com/news/1082918_how-plasma-tvs-led-to-smaller-electric-car-motor INSANE amounts of torque, 80 pounds lighter than a standard similiarly powered electric motor, 30% more efficient...sounds good to me! 2000+ lbs of torque! Sounds like it would rip the rubber right off the tire so not sure how practical it is but certainly would be good for racing or towing! Maybe for 18 wheeler trucking EV's? Or heavy machinery EV's? I wonder if it can be cooled easier (as I believe that is an issue with current EV motors in that they overheat if run hard for too long)? That would make it good for racing applications, lighter weight would be a bonus there as well. I have heard Tesla makes their own motors. I wonder if they will be looking at motors like this in the future? What do you guys think? I guess we can add the Axiflux motor to the debate of standard vs hub motors now.
