While preparing a talk on "The Recent Resurgence of the Electric Car," I realized that my slides could be kept in an iPad or smartphone for those occasions when someone asks, "But where's the motor?" and you explain that they will have to crawl under the car to see it.
The emphasis is on the great simplification of car design that Tesla has achieved by re-thinking the functional architecture.
Makes a good lunchroom presentation, so I have put together 55 slides in a 4mb PDF file. It's up on Skydrive: download from here and then save it locally. I'll keep updating it as I gain experience (please suggest changes), so download a fresh copy occasionally.
