715kw from batteries would probably at best only give you about ~640kw to the wheels ... still crazy high amount of peak power ... even if he wanted to make it into a drag racer ... he would need some crazy modifications to keep the tires from just spinning out with that kind of power being put down ... and allot of those kinds of modifications would seriously hurt his range goals.
Thinking of crazy uses for that kind of ~600kw of electrical power leads me to lasers... Here
is a high power laser diode that can do 500kw to 2MW and is itself only 22x26x8 cm... granted each laser blast only lasts a maximum of 1ns , but still part of me finds it funny... or a Tesla Coil
for the car shows... but no ... we want something 'practical' like driving for 350 miles in 1 charge.
