Dear all,
in my opinion electric vehicles need a special motor. Today's tecnologies are evolving, electric motors could offer unexpected good results.
I've manufactuted with my hands in the year 1977 three prototypes DC drives for FIAT small buses, with standard DC motors for traction.

During years, I was in touch with other technologies, for example TFM (Transversal Flux Motor), 5-phase asynchron motors, now I see at the horizon the Chorus motor able to drive an airplane around the airport.

In my opinion, electric cars will have a banefit using 5-phases brushless drives. What is the winning technology in your opinion? High-frequency motors, Chorus, brushless 5-phases, switched reluctance, or other technologies?


Note: in next weeks I will have a very little time, I'm not sure to be in position to reply.
