All we know so far

Quote:
The vehicle will have two electric motors, one on the front axle, and one on the rear axle. It will be an all-wheel-drive vehicle with a power output of 300 kilowatts and a torque of 700-Newton meters (520 lb·ft). The battery is floor-mounted.
That's all we know about Concept EQ C model so far. Not much to talk about, however, do you guys have any thoughts about it?

520 lb·ft of torque is a beastly amount for any vehicle, even the 2017 Ford F-150 EcoBoost pickup only has 470 lb·ft of torque and that's a truck meant for hard work. Don't know how BMW plans to pull these numbers off.

With electric power its easier to put down that torque but unlike the F150 with a V8 this won't be consistent power, its why you see EV's get taken over in long straight line runs vs. all the typical 1/4 mile, 1/8 mile, and even the 1/2 mile. But for the average user what germans brands can bring to the market will be adequate.
