If they in fact use a standard Tesla 'big block' they they would gain efficiency by using Quaiffe limited-slips instead of doing torque vectoring with the brakes.

The RPMs are not unnecessarily high, there's no herky-jerky motion as with a reciprocating engine. A Tesla motor takes 15 minutes to spin down on it's own.
