The future is silent.
How the transaxle likes taking the immense torque at 0rpm is another matter.
I presume its wise to programme in some kind of limiter to the power-delivery?
How far can it go on a charge?

I think they've only recently got it running for the first time, and the video only shows it doing laps of the private roads by the workshop, so they probably don't know themselves yet. Doubt it will quite have the range of an actual tesla!
