If you think about it, this is stupid, even FUBARFucked Up Beyond All Repair. People who buy electric motorcycles (or cars) do it to save money on fuel or/and because of ecological convictions (lack of CO2, noise, etc). Some, possibly myself included, because of interesting performances.

EP Tender

EP Tender
But this product goes against any of the above ideas. EP Tender got launched a few days ago in France, and it is a trailer equipped with a small 600cc engine (coming from the Tata Nano car) and a 35 liter fuel tank. The EP Tender "talks" to your electric car (and maybe with some adaptations to your electric motorcycle) and when the batteries start running on empty, kicks-in the 600cc engine to recharge your batteries while you keep driving.

The EP Tender can deliver up to 22Kw, although the French company is looking at a 900cc engine developing 35 kW.

This way you can drive (or ride) your electric vehicle for many, many, kilometers. Between your batteries and your ICEInternal Combustion Engine. An engine in which the combustion of a fuel (normally a fossil fuel) occurs with an oxidizer (usually air) in a combustion chamber that is an integral part of the working fluid flow circuit., you can run for many miles, especially because you can refuel in minutes at a gas station.

Of course it goes against everything you were looking for in an electric vehicle. If this is what you want/need, I suggest you go for an hybrid.

What do you think. Would you put this behind your electric motorcycle? Or would you only use such a trailer if you were planning to go long distance?
