If your EV gets 5 miles / kWh (extremely efficient), 10 kW = 50 mph. Most vehicles don't do that well. As such, it would be great around town, but you would have to seriously slow down to have "infinite range" on the highway. Around here, you'd get run over and/or ticketed for holding up traffic at that speed. Yes, it would be very nice around town. And it would significantly extend your range on the highway. And the efficiency is very nice. I can only guess that the other 3% turns into heat (the usual form of energy which didn't get converted to a useful form) which might help keep the roads free of ice in colder seasons. By all means, put this into use. But recognize, up front, that this will probably an "around town" application before it becomes a highway application. I've been envisioning something like this powering busses, embedded in the pavement at bus stops, for ...
