Texas Firm Claims To Have Developed The “Holy Grail” Of Electric Motors

by Natura Naturans

A Texas-based company recently raised $4.5 million in seed funding to develop and commercialize a revolutionary motor that produces more torque, double the power, and increases range in an electric vehicle versus one using a typical electric motor.

Linear Labs has big claims for its Hunstable Electric Turbine (HET), is expected to perform much better than conventional electric motors found on a Tesla or any other electric vehicle.

Vehicles with HET motors will eliminate transmission systems, will increase range by more than 10% from a current battery size while allowing the vehicle to have more power and torque.

Here, Linear Labs describes HET’s technology as the first significant advancement in electric motors in more than a century.

This is a very significant step for electric cars. Increasing efficiency by 10% will allow for that much greater range. Many problems still remain but it is likely better batteries are being created that will not spontaneously combust like Teslas. Charging times are still too long compared to gassing up a gas auto. And most important, too many cars charging at once puts a severe load on the grid.
