Excellent! Something virtually zero automotive journalists have grasped so far!
Why lose available wheel power to aero drag or rolling resistance, when you can capture 81.1% of it and shove it back into the pack?
The legacy carmakers have essentially, completely missed the boat on this.
And why their range 'sucks' compared to the more streamlined offerings of the competition.
