How crazy would it be to take the existing Model S and add Electric Superchargers to it?
Let me explain.
We all know that electric cars need to be as aerodynamic as possible.
Well in the design of every car there is at least one area that will always take the blunt of the wind trauma for a moving car....the grille.
Would it be a crazy idea for the Model S to incorporate a wind turbine of sorts to the grille of the vehicle..
That way, instead of wasting the force of the air colliding with the grille it can actually go into the grille and power some wind turbines when the car is moving!!
That could charge the battery on the run and if need be, add extra power to a hard acceleration like a supercharger......furthermore, it could just charge the battery with regular use.
but why even stop there?....there is plenty of air flow going underneath the car to also incorporate wind turbines....and even the air coming down the sides.
There is just plenty of potential to collect the air passing around the car or colliding with the grille that can be used to power wind trubines that would charge the battery..
What are your thoughts?
