There is much hope that LENR can be adapted for motorized vehicles. Andrea Rossi himself said the vehicular LENR is 20 years in the future, based on development of his models.
However, much has been done in the development of batteries for electric cars in the last few years. This would aid in the use of the E-Cat in vehicle propulsion. The E-Cat takes a while to achieve operating temperature, and a while to shut down – about an hour for each activity. In a vehicle, this can be prohibitive to use of the vehicle. The advancement of batteries for use in cars may help with the implementation of LENR in cars. The battery could be charged by the E-Cat, which could be left running. The excess energy used to charge batteries could provide power for home electrical use, or fed into the grid through a hookup in the garage. The on-board batteries could also supply extra power needed for passing and driving up hills.
