    With a pretty strong electromagnetic motor between the back wheels, is the magnetic field large enough to cause worries for hard drives?

    There is a whole thread on EMF radiation. EMF Radiation .

    To answer your question, no, don't worry about it. Roadster owners have been leaving laptops, external drives, USB sticks, SD cards in the trunk nestled up to the PEM with nary a report of lost data.
