Adding a transmission only adds complexity - yielding more moving parts to fail. If you don't need it, why have it at all? That's something Elon excels at; finding inefficiencies and eliminating them. It's so nice when you don't have 250 parts that make up your engine, but 25 parts that make up your motor. peacehttps://www.motortrend.com/news/jeeps-magneto-concept-wrangler-ev-photos-details/
Interesting, and its name is... A major Marvel villain?
I've often wondered bout having a transmission - at least control of one - in an EV. For the most part, it's only really needed for speed, as the motor has the same efficiency in whatever optimal configuration. But having that direct connection to the power available is pretty cool. I rarely use the modes on my Zero, but I do use them.
