I have read about the Brabus All Electric 4wd , and now it seems it is in production.
Brabus uses wheel hub engines. 4 of them for a whopping 4 x 110 hp. 440 HP. Grip on all wheels. Must be fun. Even in wintertime.
As we know there is no plan for a 4wd Tesla S any time soon.
But wouldn't it be possible for Tesla also to use those Protean Electric motors?
Sure bolting 2 of them in front corners must be cost friendly way to give Tesla S 4wd?
I do see the obvious, that those 2 electric motors will increase the unsprung weight. Are there others?
Maybe possible to do an personal upgrade to the front wheels, slightly modification maybe but should be doable?
Here you can see those In-wheel motors
