Is This Your Future Hybrid And Electric Car Motor?

Is This Your Future Hybrid And Electric Car Motor?

The variant that doesn't depend for cost on China's rare earth monopoly sounds promising. Not sure about the connection between using less power and range though. To put out the same KW lower power (V) just means higher current (A). Of course 3-5% better efficiency would (marginally) increase range. I wonder how this stacks up to Tesla's design though. Tesla's induction motor motor is rare earth free, air cooled, draws power from large packs which I think makes the lower operating voltage less interesting and is mounted already extremely efficient between the rear wheels. Maybe this is mostly interesting for hybrids with small battery packs and serious packaging problems for the large number of parts they contain.
