2013 Tesla Model S. I would have allowed the battery pack to be twice as tall if it meant it could be half as wide. Low center of gravity is great, but a battery weighing 550 kg is a huge mass to distribute so far across the entire width.

Narrower at about the same distance or closer ought to allow better body control.
