They'd have to change their motors, wiring, inverters, controllers, chargers, superchargers... And standard wiring goes to 600v so they'd have to get special wiring, too. (There's a reason the 800v cars so far have been really expensive.)Why not just make it 801v or 750? Seems ez to do it if they wanted.
Or deal with the patent.
It's easier (for now) to ignore it and stay where production is cheaper. I hope they'll be keeping an eye out for how to make that jump in the future, but until then... I can kinda understand a little dismissal.
Wait until coildriver motors start coming out. That's another patent on 'we put relays in weird places' but at least it was hard to do.
