Does Tesla holds patents that protects any of their solutions to EV?
I just read about a new EV company out of Detroit,
Detroit Electric. Even they will use the same base as Tesla did for the roadster - the British Lotus.
While newcomers are welcome in order to boost innovation and keep every player alert - what legal precautions have Tesla taken? I mean are the electric motor in itself anything special - or really just a brush-less motor made up of copper coils?
What about batteries and cooling?
Really I see competition as a good thing, but I hope there will be real competition not just glancing at others blueprints.
And what stops global manufacturers from embedding the same approach to their own existing models?
