I can tell just from the picture no hub motor, at least up front.

Hub notors? We don' need no steenking hub motors.

It does have twin motors and torque vectoring.

I found this interview from March. Good detail on profit margins and etc.

Ironically, Ford Expedition bought ads next to this.

There are two motors, each one drives a front wheel, through a drive shaft. They have torque vectoring.

I wonder what it would do with pontoon fenders (oblique box cavities for turn radius) a dive plane in front and a full boat tail. On The Salt.

Chop that whole cage down, recline the seat more and put a 3/4 scale P51 canopy on the top.

I don't remember what thread it was on but that electric Vanderhall certainly has the style compared to the Arcimoto even if I bet living with the Arcimoto in the real world is better. That and you get 2 or more Arcimotos for what the E Vanderhall will cost.
