Apparently two motors, one each end, but with different performance characteristics. Front for efficiency in normal running and rear for extra performance. (According to Autocar) Seems heavy at 2400kg and has a small battery pack for the size, but at least nice looking- in my eyes. Not sure about that quoted range- Autocar quotes 280 miles (450km) on the far more optimistic NEDC cycle! Interesting that they are boasting a cd of 0.30, which is poor compared with a Model X (0.25), and I think worse than the I-Pace as well. Aero efficiency is important when you have limited ‘fuel capacity’, hence the Tesla Model 3 has a cd of 0.23......
