New EV technology starting at the heavy end

Electric vehicles larger than cars include many boats, trucks, buses and other industrial and commercial vehicles, manned and unmanned aircraft and military vehicles for the field of combat and supply lines, even tugs for aircraft. Some electric vehicles are the size of a car but pack a much bigger punch. For example, forklifts and earthmovers can have much more powerful motors with many times the kW and Nm torque of car motors. Autonomous Underwater Vehicles AUVs incorporate batteries at up to 400kWh, the storage capacity of up to ten cars. All these vehicles account for over 60% of the money spent on electric vehicles today and it is there that much innovation is happening first, long before the car industry gets involved.
