You'll notice the camber links are angled much more as well (especially in the rear). It has to do with the major weight difference between the two cars and the difference in centers of gravity (cg's). Gas cars have much higher cg's than electric cars and need suspensions with different roll centers to accomodate it.

That's my educated guess....
