An ordinary car uses only between 15 and 20 kW at a velocity of 90 km/h. A big truck uses around 150 kW. In order to overtake and keep the speed on an incline the motors are powered up between five and ten times. Electric motors have a much better torque than fuel cars and do not need a gearbox. This means that the maximum power can be reduced somewhat and still maintain the same performance. With the Elways solution the concept of feeding from the road the average power consumption required is only 15 kW for a car and 150 kW for a truck. When overtaking and in slopes excess power is taken from the battery, so the driver will not notice any reduction in performance.
