Why is there an electric motor in addition?

Because if you want Hypercar performance, you have to have electric in the mix now. You can't charge $1-2million for a car that can be outrun by a 4-door electric sedan up to 60mph that's 1/10th the cost. The new Koenigsegg Regera generates 1.1MW+ of power(1475HP), 800ish HP from the ICE and 700ish HP from the electric motor. The electric motor gets it off the line VERY quickly from 0-60 and the ICE hauls it up the rest of the way to over 280mph. The Regera also carries a $2.2million price tag. The perk of electric motor is that it provides full torque at 0 RPMs. It also permits them to vector the torque to individual wheels to optimize traction and performance in turns. It's the laws of physics. You just can't get the same performance out of an ICE.

Something to consider before purchasing the LaFerrari linked above is that it isn't street legal. You can only drive it on the track or on your private island.

Saint Cloud, Minnesota, where the weather is wonderful even when it isn't.
