But this example has to do with the of electric cars from the perspective behind the wheel.

As you may electric cars dispense the gear-shifting process that a combustion engine’s peaky and torque curve to the increasing speed of the vehicle.

But Lotus apparently that driving experience be so strange, so odd, so foreign—so —to drivers of regular cars that it needs to this alien driving

According to a person close to Engineering, the company is experimenting control software on its Lotus 414E plug-in hybrid car, which began last summer.

It’s enough to make us to bring back crank which occasionally broke the arm during the processing of firing up the
