To make Electric Cars practical, all we seem to hear about is the advancement of battery technology. No one seems to have any concern for motor technology, since its 100 years old and you can't exceed 100% efficiency. So being in Electric Motor design most of my career, I have now developed what I call a magnetic motor utilizing permanent magnets. Its not perpetual motion, but it does rotate about 90% of one revolution! To keep the motor turning, I have to pulse it with a small amount of electricity. The good news is that the motor actually produces more power than it uses, which means the Electric car can be driven for unlimited miles!..The bad news is the motor won't start on its own. So I'm looking for ideas to overcome this problem.
