    A non EV section has been requested but not sure the outcome.....

    I assume an Land Rover EV section would be straight forward once one is announce and or released.

    How big a generator would you need to have to keep the electric motors going in an EV? Not in a hybrid drive way but a Diesel Locomotive way.

    Would need to be MASSIVE , Whats you average $3000 Deisel generator about 1000x 700 x600 put out ? about 5 -10Kw

    Look how much my EV Landy uses on a suburban street , just note when the Amps are positive its using power, when the amps are negative it generating power via braking.

    Amazing EV Series.

    Something I've wondered for a while... if you go on a long trip, can you take a little generator or even a largish solar setup to charge your batteries up? In some sort of meaningful, touring Australia sort of a way. Doesn't need to be instant, but something realistic.

    i'm only a novice on EV.....but somebody posted an app/website which lists charging points around Australia, you can pretty much drive around Australia but you are stuck to the main drag

    there is an article on mark adaptors taking 2 x EV across the simpson using solar and not cannot remember if there was a generator and/or support vehicles


    I followed the travels of one guy on the charger app, he was driving a hi-lux that was 100% electric, on the tray was a generator along with his swag and camping gear, not sure how remote he went but it looks like he does venture away from the main charging areas........


    i'm more and more surprised at what people are doing and i'm guessing with a bit of planning and a back up plan you could get to some interesting places............I expect it will slowly gain traction

    Mine has a 3.3kw charger so can charge at any normal 15Amp outlet , which means any Caravan park , so could easily plan a trip based on caravan parks.

    As Weeds stated, Mark French crossed the Simpson just by charging on a fold out array Solar panels , Charged by Day & drove into the Night. Took 4 days.

    You can also charge by being towed using the regenerative braking function, so if you do run out thats an option.
