Saw this one the other day. I guess the Prime does have 2 motors...
Don't all Prius have two motors? AWDe Prius has three motors, I think. Is this on 2020 PRIME?
No, it's straight from a Tesla Model 3 Performance... just stuck to the back of a Prime
Where do I get one
Motor's a term with varied meanings. Technically now, at least in North America, I think it's accepted to be electrical? And an engine infers gasoline combustion. Still, there's the expression "motor oil". And the Brits say "motor car" (think Terry Thomas).
Don't say that to a rocket scientist. Or should I say 'rocket engineer'. While they use electrical controls and guidance systems, their motors are still powered mostly with chemical fuels and oxidizers.
Yes, the terms have varied meanings. But from Dictionary by Merriam-Webster: America's most-trusted online dictionary:
Synonyms for engine
Synonyms & Antonyms for motor
Technically lol. But the red underline denoting “Performance” is definitely a lie.
Hurray for combined cycles!
Hobby rockets kits use the expression "motor" too I think. We had one of those when the kids were small.

ask an engineer, what's the difference between a motor and an engine?

If anyone is interested. Found the "Dual Motor" emblem on eBay.
Well, you could say it has two motors and one engine. Then, if you include the air conditioning motors, the vent fan motors, the battery fan motors, the inverter pump motor, the windshield wiper motor, the brake pump motor, ... etc ...
Classic.. 'Dozen Motor' should be a badge.
Once bought a 'Turbo Intercooler' badge from a car boot sale back in the UK and stuck it on the rear of my Ford Orion (small family sedan). The amount of people genuinely interested in seeing the turbo was staggering.
We also had a 'Philips' TV at the time, it was a non brand that I printed out a sticker for.
Was looking under the hood at some Grand National's at a vintage car show on the weekend. Serious looking phalanx of all-black stealth cars...
All I had was say aloud "wonder what the displacement is", and an aficionado stepped up, gave us a bit of history.
Loved it so much I added the Dual Motor to mine.
