Not new power electronics; need one rear motor as you would likely need two inverters to control two motors. Regardless, the Surf is pretty useful as it is, as many vehicles do not have flat load floors. The main issue for me (if i was to use it as a utility vehicle as I use my P100d) is trunk opening. It is quite small. You can fit a surprising amount of stuff in the Surf trunk (issue is what you can load into it- through that opening).
Doug, are you coming to the SF event? If you are, maybe we will bring up our 2012 Fisker Karma infused by Tesla prototype... basically the best of both worlds.
