A second drive unit at the rear of the battery box seems likely. 160hp, 4WD and steer.

As for the big players, all Arcimoto has to do keep up the momentum to become uncatchable the way Tesla/SpaceX [is/are]. Perfecting a reproducable factory is the key.

Local_Motors Make micro-factories tailored to the vehicle it will produce. They started in 2007 just like Arcimoto, and have micro-factories in Knoxville TN (where they make Olli) and Phoenix AZ (the Rally_Fighter)

Tuesday's meeting granted Local Motors a vehicle tag allowing their shared, autonomous, electric vehicle, Olli, to operate on Valley Vista Road in Knox County for testing purposes. This makes Olli the first autonomous vehicle to operate on public roads in Knox County and allows the autonomous system to learn in mixed-traffic settings under the supervision of a certified safety attendant.
