Can anyone tell me if the AC induction motor that Tesla has developed is a PMAC motor or not. I find it hard to believe that they are getting that much regeneration from simply an AC induction motor. What an incredible piece if engineering. Test drove one for an hour and must own a couple of them. Can not wait for the model X to replace my gas guzzling QX-56. Does anyone know if there plans to make a sports car. The coupe is awesome and the crossover will be too. I may want a third and have the next generation of a roadster if there are plans for one. Someone should step up and help Elon and build upon the battery technology. Elon is such a visionary, you would think it would be contagious and someone would build on the battery technology. I can't imagine where we will be in 5 years with the advancements that Telsa is making today.
