My Zap Xebra uses a "reluctance" motor: It is reluctant to go very fast, and it is reluctant to go up a really steep hill, and it is reluctant to get up to speed from a stop.
I still like it, though, because it's enabled me to drive electric for four years while waiting for something better to come along.
I will be glad to switch from a reluctance motor to one that is not so reluctant.
Reserved afternoon of 4/20.
