Re: [EVDL] No subject. Now wind powered EV.

They have a 8 kWh battery and can go 250 miles,
this is an unbelievable low 32 Wh per mile, but
if you look at their vehicle then you see it is
specially built on sort of bicycle wheels...
The principle of moving under the influence of
wind was discovered long ago, not just for
sailing vessels but in other applications also.
I doubt that they are the first vehicle to cross
a continent by wind power. I expect that more than
a century ago many ships did the same feat, though
not in the same time or over the road.
