    When I took a test ride I was told that it's the same motor in the front of the P85D as in the back and front of the 85D. But when I look at the ordering pages it says 2x 188 hk in the 85D and 221 hk in the front of the P85D. Is it the same motor but different inverters or is anything else?

    Yes, from what we know it's a different inverter but the same motor. And the P85D rear motor is the same as the P85 used to have.
