Panasonic Mid-Drive motor

Actually Panasonic made mid motors for the Japanese market dating back to the 70's.

The new motors look well under spec and will most likely be paired with Panasonic 2170 batteries ala Tesla in order to eek a little more performance out of them. Yamaha and Bridgestone also made mid motors during the same time period of similar design.

It was Sanyo that was the major hub motor producer in Japan for years.
