For electric cars to replace fuel burners they must have intrinsic advantages beyond those seen today and cost significantly less to operate, but 125 years of evolution has made the ICE car hard to beat. A modular battery electric “ridek” composed of “ridon” and “modek” exchangeable modules offers many economies, conveniences and a business plan that cannot be matched by conventional cars. It bears the successful advantages of a mutation, matched by reproducibility. A score of the projected advantages of this new species of electric vehicle are presented herewith and it is tempting to conjecture that more will manifest themselves. It is intriguing to note that a vehicle that readily comes apart (like NASCAR racers) has several features that enhance its overall safety over that of conventional cars.
