Want a car with two trunks, raise the hood (bonnet) and nothing's in it. Crawl underneath, no differential, transmission. What the F. Most the weight is gone, all the crap that breaks and needs service, gone.
Have you ever been around these bigger than a house mining trucks? I have, lots of times in factories. Every wheel has an electric motor. Thats the deal here. An 80 pound 100 hp motor in the wheel, or wheels. Put a few batteries where the gas tank was, a few more where the engine/transmission was in the front for balance, the extra space is for golf clubs and a fishing pole. Next year these new motors are going into production, and they can be retrofit to old cars, and you can tie your crazy ass brother to the transmission you take out and throw it in the lake.
