My question is if Tesla ever played with the MIEV-idea, the use of 2 or 4 small electrical engines in the wheels instead of one big engine + connectionshafts? My opinion is this is a more compacter(thuss lighter), practical and efficient solution as you'll need less parts. Or has Tesla done some homework to prove that the 1 engine-solution is better? Also with the lower point of gravity and more space for batteries it looks like something ideal for this great innovating company to work with in the future.
Thanks in advance.
