Jaguar Highlights Electric Car Efficiency By Crossing The Channel To Brussels

By Nicolas Zart One of the many reasons we love electric vehicles (EV) is, presumably, because we love efficiency. Compared to the woefully pushy, but highly asthmatic, internal combustion engine (ICE), the electric motor “suffers” from the opposite problem — it’s too darn efficient. In fact, it’s so efficient that it needs to tune down. A gasoline engine requires better airflow, less friction, again and again just to make it 40% efficient (and only within a restricted RPM range) whereas an electric motor is easily 85% efficient. Must we go on? Jaguar just showed how efficient the electric drivetrain is
