Here's another video:

I've seen it, and it's very impressive. You'd think in-wheel motors is the latest tech, but Ferdinand Porsche has invented them more than 110 years ago. The man really was a genius.

Its a brushed motor. To remove the brushes and turn a celling fan inside out, now thats a feat!

Those videos seem identical, just one was lacking the sound track and fancy film effects. Id like to see him engage the ev mode, regen, assist, etc and how that worked. Maybe that drum that rotated with the lever controlled that?

Neat radiator, hiuh?
