I'm not an expert, but it works in a similar way to any other power steering. There is a sensor that detects when the steering wheel is moving, and a motor and gearset that works, for all practical purposes, like regular power steering. It dosen't require a pump for the engine to spin, and it seems to do much better in the cold. Electric motors have some serious torque to them, GM used to have an electric car that would outrun a Miata around an oval track.

Basically there is a control module who's output is attached to the motor. the processor takes inputs such as vehicle speed and torque applied to the steering wheel to come up with the amount of assist needed. i should know, i make them. not for the redline though, mine are made by motorola and go in the G6 and Malibu, all epsilon based cars and fiat and opel cars

One convincing piece of evidents that you can tell your Dad about it being is electric is telling him to find where to put the power steering fluid for the pump (hint: there is none).
