In most electric cars, the motor is found on one axle and in four-wheel drive cars there will be two motors, one on each axle.
But some companies are working on a radical redesign, placing motors in the wheels themselves.
Boldfaced emphasis added by me.
Where does the writer think the motor inside an electric unicycle is? Where’s the motor in a Onewheel? Hub motors have existed for years. The writer is ignorant and impressed by nothing new. Don’t ever count on the established press to understand or to cover Alt-Wheels properly.
There’s bound to be renewed interest in the Onewheel Pint since Future Motion announced it’s now shipping in just 5-7 days (see Alt-Wheels Briefly #11) so I’ve decided to devote the video section this time to the Pint.
