Oh, and great photo. Is that all 4 wheels spinning as they are all powered?

Do they time the runs up the hill?

What were the times for the Emira and the Evija and how do they stack up against other cars like the Evora etc?

Turbos? It has turbos on the electric motors? Another first for Lotus!

Maybe the motors flip from Star to Delta windings and that's what they mean? (I think that is right?)

I didn't mind the shape of the 911 to be truthful from when I was much younger, but I have to be brutally honest, the Taycan is ugly.

An interesting article from an electrical engineering perspective: https://www.eetimes.com/pushing-the-limits-of-weight-power-delivery-in-ev-hypercars/

Some more detailed info about the Evija e-powertrain. The use of wind-bandgap Silicon Carbide in the inverter is leading edge, much lower switching losses than Silicon, less cooling required for a given energy throughput. Plus integrating the inverter with the motor further reduces parasitic losses that you find if the 2 are separated. Not that Lotus themselves designed it, that was done by Williams Advanced Engineering with the hardware supplied by Integral Powertrain ltd.
