I was wondering what I consider as the most important variable of an EV. And I have come to the conclusion that that surely has to be the range of an EV. Other people might think differently about this.
For me it is absolutely of less importance that my EV can go from 0 to 100 km/hr within 5 seconds. This would be nice, but not very important. For example, I wouldn't mind to go from 0 to 100 in 12 seconds. So, I wouldn't mind to give up the fantastic performance capabilities of the car, just te get more range in return.
So, therefore I was thinking, would it technically be possible for Tesla Motors to manufacture a Tesla Model S, that will have much less performance capabilities, but on the other hand will have a significant better range (something in the range of 400 miles = 640 km)?
How? Maybe by changing the inverter and the motor (both will have a lower capacity)?
I would like to know what other people think about this. I would appreciate your posts. Thanks and cheers.
