I see so much time and money put into all these electric vehicles to improve their charge times, power capacities and range. My question is, why haven't any companies redesigned the electric motor? They all seem to stick to the same basics of motor design that have been used for over a 100 years now. Why can't the electric motor be made more efficient? It just seems to me that some basic laws of physics are ignored in the designs that could greatly improve on the basic motor designs.
