pretty sure electric motors and/or their batteries need to be cooled as much as a gasoline motor.

not sure about the air intake though, if its a true electric car i think it would have been repurposed instead of just left behind.

Electric powered vehicles have more complicated cooling systems than gasoline or diesel engines and will have multiple reservoirs and heat exchangers. The motor, battery packs and HV modules have to be cooled (in some cases with electric A/C) and heated. Optimal temperature is critical for battery range and longevity so heating up the battery in cold weather and cooling it down in the heat is critical.

Points of interest in video

1:25 - motor specs and supplier
2:55 - purpose of vehicle
3:30 - Standards and Protocols
4:30 - 50/50 weight distribution
5:00 - climate control
6:10 - Chassis handling (9-3x chassis)
7:15 - Cabin Noise
7:45 - 1850 KG weight
8:20 - Plans for production
