I don't mind SEEING the turbine. I think they both are and look lovely. Though Donald Trump would pay millions/(billions?) to disagree. :mrgreen:

Even an expensive commercial or well built plug in car has severe range limitations. Therefore it is a vehicle specialized for limited distance commuting usually owned in addition to one or more regular ICE vehicle for longer road trips. Given that specialization, doesn't an electric bike satisfy a ...

I have an older Ezee Torq (lightweight 250w model) that required battery replacements as well. Curious if other ES members have compared the various older Ezee geared hubs to the newer ones. Can't decide if Justin's 400w kit is worth it for upgrading. There are lots of steep hills in Bay Area. Brund...

Not ideal, but I suppose given the moderate weight (for ebikes anyway) could be an option. I'm waging (at least hoping) once units arrive people will step up to the task.

Mistercrash,
Thank you for the summary on the video. The load times for the evtv were excessive. Disappointed to hear how difficult it was for Mr. Rickard to take apart the packs. Hope ES members are able to find alternative ways to reconfigure cells :|

Yep, video experts slowed and zoomed to capture it. The owner claimed 'the car had been stolen' but the 'report' was after the accident. He was hiding in a hotel at Jack London Square, Oakland.
