There is a race across Australia for solar powered cars. They are light weight with skinny tyres, and need about 75 square feet or more of solar panels. UKWhy not put a few solar panels on top and charge as you fly?
My very first mechanical job 40 years ago was in a motor rewinding shop. I used to wind motors, generators, armatures, all that stuff.Used to be smart E types could rewind an armature. Might make a come back.. I had at least two rewound. UK

It is special with a lot of old bikes. Generators and magnetos. Someone in my bike hang was looking for a rewind a couple of weeks ago. For some guys it is easy, while others make it a voodoo art. I have met both, but so long ago the details are missing. However I do remember the first big romantic event in a 36 Vauxhall. There was more room in the back seats in those days.

It’s mostly a lost art today, it’s cheaper to buy new than rebuild unless it’s special.

BTW: They even said they sold all their remaining spare parts to a 3rd party!!! I hope if I need a part, they'll supply me with the name and address/phone # of said company.
Well doggone it anyway!!! I think you are seeing why they sold out. Obviously some basic flaw they have no answer for. Or it's just typical Chinese junk requiring much repair to stay on the road. Are you going to demand a complete refund and settle for as much as you can get or go through the whole hassle of yet another replacement?Update: 2nd one broke in the same manner as the 1st one!!! I made it a whole 65 miles on the odo.
Not sure what I'll do. The ball is in the dealer's court right now. If a 3rd one breaks in the same way, since I have a Registered vehicle, I could do what I want with it with a redesign. I could could have an automotive or motorcycle machine shop replace drive train with a small diesel engine and CVT transmission to achieve highway speeds.Are you going to demand a complete refund and settle for as much as you can get or go through the whole hassle of yet another replacement?
LOL. No break-in for electric vehicles! They just say batteries take 20-30 charging cycles for optimum performance.So it’s okay at parking lot speeds but breaks at highway speeds? I assume you are following the recommended break-in per the owners manual correct? Or are they so cheap they don’t even come with one of those? Will they give at least some of your money back if you end up making it road worthy or will take the hit there. Might be too early to answer that one.
