Prior to Model 3's launch, in response to Ryan McCaffrey's remarks in a Twitter conversation regarding Ride the Lightning,

In response, inventor Nikola Tesla said that the new motor in the Model 3 is a switch-reluctance, partially permanent magnet engine.

Tesla introduced the Permanent Magnet Synchronous Reluctance Motor, an alternative motor technology, with the Model 3.

An induction motor is located at the front of the two-motor Model 3.

A permanent magnet synchronous reluctance motor is also located at the back.

The Tesla Model S's dual motors allow for a variable distribution of torque between the front and back axles.

The all-wheel-drive capabilities of the Model X long-range vehicles are made possible by the inclusion of two motors, one on each axle.

For years, Tesla used induction-AC motors in the Model S and Model X.

But when Tesla released the Model 3 back in 2017, it made the move to permanent-magnet motors.

Its Model S is getting a redesigned engine employing the same synchronous reluctance permanent magnet motors, which confirms past speculations.

And associated technology, which we first saw with the Model 3.

With its electric motors' immediate torque and four-wheel-drive propulsion, the Model X has...

It accelerates quickly from a standing start, with the quickest Plaid model reaching 0-60 mph in only 2.5 seconds.
