A 4x4 7 is nowt new, Dax did it years ago and perhaps they don't do it now for a reason?........I would say pointless as the thing will be big clumsy and very heavy and the complete opposite of what a light weight sports car is meant to be.

Lot easier to package 1,2 or 4 traction motors than a transverse engine and box.

Just the batteries to hide!
