    Unfortunately the video producers didn't stick to the brief and devoted a lot of times in showing the inefficiency of the internal combustion engine.

    Fair enough, but it was more of a sales pitch and less about passing on knowledge.

    Why is the induction motor / invertor package behind the rear driveshaft rather than in front of it?
    surely for centre of gravity and other reasons it would be better to have it inboard of the wheelbase rather than slung out the back a la 911?
    Can't argue with anything else though.....
