My car doesn't have a neutral, its direct drive with no clutch or gearbox! Better not have a controller failure. However, I use a precharge resistor of 500 ohms and the main contactor won't close until the voltage comes up to about 80%. I hope that a controller fault that meant applying full voltage to the motor would prevent that.

There is a guy here with a Toyota Celica who claims 10t w-hrs per km - about 170 w-hrs per mile - which is about as efficient as I have seen.
Sometimes I sits and thinks and sometimes I just sits.
