Notes -

  1. The battery pack forms the bottom of the vehicle between the axles, concentrating the mass between the axles.
  2. Thereby distributing its mass equally on its axles and lowering its rotational inertia, allowing it to turn more quickly.
  3. Since the battery pack is the single most heavy component of the vehicle, the car has a very low center of gravity height, due to the location of the battery pack.
  4. This also helps in achieving a high lateral acceleration and an increased protection against rollover. 
  5. The placement of the battery pack increases the rigidity of the passenger compartment, improving the passive safety of the car.
