Electric Motors and Vehicles

Is it just me or do electric vehicles eat up too much power? I have 1 large electric motor on my vehicle and when I put 1,000 batteries in it and set it to run 50mph it conks out after two turns.

Solar panels don’t seem to work either, 3 days of waiting with 4 solar panels and four storage batteries are still at 0%.

Solar panels are finicky: they only charge under “Clear” or “Sunny” conditions. I’d argue for charging under “Cloudy” as well–otherwise, solar may well not charge for days on end during Spring or Fall, let alone Winter.
