Wrong, on both counts:
•Decoupled loads: generator works to charge batteries, while batteries provide power to turn the wheels.
•Open generator architecture: the Wrightspeed Route ™ can use any number of on-board power generation options, including micro-turbines and piston engines.
•No range anxiety! The Route ™, given refueling, has an unlimited range
High-Power Battery System
•Exceptional regen capability: 400 hp
•The high-power battery system provides peak power, allowing the generator to operate at its most efficient point.
•PLUG IT IN, for up to 40 miles on grid energy.
