I would expect a future version of this article to yield similar revisions.

One thing that stuck out as interesting is the two-speed transmission. I have seen other recent articles about some future EVs using two-speed transmissions. Although this adds complexity - a single speed step down gearbox is much simpler than a multi-speed gearbox - it will allow for a better compromise between efficiency and top speed.
My pleasure.

What jumped out at me is this:

"Although details are still sketchy, we hear that BMW M is zooming in on 500V charging with a possible 800V upgrade by 2023, which would reduce the charge time of a large battery to less than 20 minutes. "

What range anxiety?

P.S. What happened to your quadruple clutch super rare M3? :P
