    New Permanent motor

    I saw this company has patented supposedly a 20% more efficient motor. Could be interesting for EV use. Besides being more efficient, would not need a gearbox.

    Seemed interesting. Unfortunately I have zero knowledge of how PM motors work, so it could be snake oil.

    the motor sounds legit BUT the 20% and NO reduction sounds a bit "vapourware"

    Sounds neat, but I'm no scientist. We've read a lot of articles of miracle products over the years and they never see the light of day. I think we were supposed to be driving around in biofuel, carbon neutral cars by now (I think sourced from switchgrass or algae tanks).
