So what are the relative merits of this idea.

Have a tractor kind of vehicle with only supercaps and hub motors in all wh=
eels. Then a side car or trailer with all the required batteries for your s=
horter trip. The trailer would all have these same hub motors. Let's say DC=
for ease of design for the controller.

Then you could exchange the trailer at home for a new pack or for the hybri=
d trailer if you take a longer trip.

Having so many hub motors means they can be lighter on each wheel. I would =
consider using a 3wheel car with inline seating for two. Then the trailer i=
s a side car(s) kind of thing tied to the front and back and not extending =
the vehicle length any.
