Interesting that they're just licensing the technology, not manufacturing it. Keep's them asset light and avoids all that overhead. Not to mention cyclicality and labor issues...At the same time, it's unfortunate, since it won't mean many jobs here.As far as the technology is concerned, I'd think that in-wheel drive would be more efficient than frame mounted. The more mechanical coupling you employ, the more work is lost to friction. I'm not an engineer, but I'd expect fewer moving parts to always enhance efficiency.
