Linear Labs is out to reinvent the electric motor

Electric vehicles have become an extremely common sight for most people. Whether it’s viewing a shiny new Tesla lower the street, or hopping on a light rail train or renting a power scooter to get from that train to your house, EVs are everywhere.

One problem with electrical motors is that because of the speeds at which they rotate, to become useful in most vehicles, they want a gear reduction device. I’d call it a transmitting, but usually, these gearboxes just have one acceleration. This takes the 10,000 rpm from a drive electric motor and reduces the swiftness at the wheels while multiplying torque.

What if there have been a motor that gear reduction motor didn’t have to spin as fast as that to create enough usable power and torque to drive a vehicle? If that existed, you could alter all sorts of reasons for having electric car design. In the event that you didn’t require a gearbox, you would save a good-size chunk of weight and, maybe even more crucially, space.

With that space, you could raise the size of your battery pack, and with the reduced weight, you would improve all sorts of things like handling, range and acceleration.
