Before the release of Model 3, and in a reply to Ryan McCaffreys comments in a Twitter thread about Ride the Lightning,

inventor Nikola Teslas responded by saying the Model 3s new motor is a switch-reluctance, partially permanent magnet, engine.

 The Model 3 debuted an alternate motor technology, which Tesla called the Permanent Magnet Synchronous Reluctance Motor.

The Model 3s two-motor version has an induction motor up front,

And a permanent magnet synchronous reluctance motor at the rear.

The dual-motor Tesla Model S allows differential torque distribution between the front and rear axles.

 Model X long-range models are equipped with two motors - one on the front axle, and one on the back - allowing all-wheel-drive capabilities.

With Model S and Model X, Tesla used induction-AC motors for years,

But Tesla switched to permanent-magnet motors when it introduced Model 3 way back in 2017.

 Confirming earlier rumors, its Model S is getting a revised powertrain using the same synchronous reluctance permanent magnet motors

And related technologies we saw for the first time with Model 3.

The Model Xs combination of instant torque from its electric motors and four-wheel-drive propulsion means that...

it has an amazing amount of speed from a standing start, sending the fastest Plaid variant 0-60mph in only 2.5 seconds.
