Could Range-Extended Cars Save The Rotary Engine? Mazda Says Yes via @GreenCarReports

Could Range-Extended Cars Save The Rotary Engine? Mazda Says Yes via @GreenCarReports

It's good to see so much innovation in cleaner technologies, but you have to bear in mind that a range extender is not there to recharge the battery, it is there to provide drive power when the battery is exhausted. Will this efficent at 2000rpm engine be able to deliver enough power to keep you going at full speed on the motorway? Other range extended cars vary the revs to suit demand, will this rotary have to do the same? will it become less efficent if it does? Many people think range extenders just trickle charging the battery from a small engine, but this is not how range extenders need to work. The first battery powered drive should be just that pure EV, no fuel top-up, then we can convert the 85% of journeys that are short to 100%EV
