Each motor is 10kw cont. and 30kw peak...
Could these be retrofitted into a car rim? could they be paired? side-by-side to create 60kw car wheels?
Generally speaking 15-20kw should be enough to cruise at freeway speeds (70mph)
Imagine 2 in each wheel, 8 motors, 240kw peak, AWD and AWD-regen braking, more room for batteries, 1300each = 10K$ price tag for motors alone...
What do you think of this setup? A bit over the top eh?
8 motors = $10,400 (4 motor pairs, 1 pair for each wheel)
8 controllers = $8,000 (I am not sure if this could be simplified)
37 400AH TS cells = $16,300 (48kwh, if 15kwh = 70mph, then 100%DoD = 224miles, pack weighs 1000lbs)
BMS = 2,300 (not sure but seems reasonable)
Total $37,000 (w/o donor)
