Protean Electric makes in-wheel motors for EV's. Is that a better option than to use a motor between two wheels (Tesla Model S)?

Do you think that Tesla Motors will engineer these in-wheel motors for one of their future models? It might lead to more range using the same battery pack.

Have a look at their website:

It could be adventageous in some ways, but increasing the unsprung weight (weight that is not supported by the suspension, like wheels and tires for example) negatively affects ride quality.
