>The company is also working on building an artificial gearshift system for the electric drivetrain, which uses paddle shifters to allow the driver to experience ‘gear shifts’ and the sensation of the hitting the torque limits of a conventional internal combustion engine.

>Operating the paddles will introduce small torque interruptions to the delivery of the electric motor and even imitate the way torque delivery drops on most combustion engines as the redline is approached.

This is absurd. The whole point of electrics is lots of right-now smooth torque. Celebrate that. I'd celebrate on an autocross course.

So is the camera shutter sound on all point and shoots. It's inevitable. Evolution and subsequent adoption of technology always has its transitional stages.
