Yummy!This seems to be the motor assembly for the upcoming all electric Audi e-tron quattro:
It's interesting to me that nobody is going with one motor per wheel designs, at least not that I've seen. I would think that would let you get rid of some differential/geartrain mass, and give you super-fine instantaneous control of torque at each corner, including torque vectoring for cornering, plus counter-torque for ABS/ESP type purposes, as well as braking and regeneration. There must be a big cost or mass win with one big motor instead of two small ones at each axle.
