    Looks like some great engineering has gone in to that.

    Yes, a neat piece of engineering - and by using the unit as a starter-generator, only ~50kg weight penalty (not sure if that includes the battery and control equipment though).
    Interesting to hear that they're planning to extend the application to other series, including the air-cooled cars.
