It has the same bell house mounting pattern and crankshaft flange as the popular LS-family engines, allowing it to work with virtually any GM transmission.

In other words, the 700-hp motor might just be a first look at the electric Chevy crate motor of the future.

It makes sense that they would use the turbo 400 transmission, electric motors have a broad and flat torque curve, but I do find it funny that a 35 year old automatic would be the first choice.

IMO, they run the risk of killing the traditional "whole car" brand.  I believe part of the electric vehicles industry will eventually be a Lego-like industry where we assemble semi-custom cars & light trucks.  This could be a step in that direction.
