The truth is, I want a kick-ass electric vehicle more than I want to build one.
My Rav4 EV delivers 154 hp and 273 ft/lb of torque. Compare that with a 2018 gasoline burning Rav4 with 172 hp and 176 ft/lb of torque. In addition to having an unusual amount of torque, all that EV torque is available at the low end of the RPM range. That means far more seat-of-the pants driving thrills you can hope to get in any other daily driver economy car.
Maybe the title of this post should be “Mission Accomplished.”
I am officially changing the topic of this blog to a more general meandering collection of posts about my various projects and interests.
