Also the motor is 90 plus eff at 75% of max speed. Huge amount of work was done to minimize eddy currents at speed to improve eff. This is a custom design that cost EnerTrac a huge amount of money to develop.

EnerTrac Corp. has several test motorcycles all are welcome to test ride and judge the performance and range for oneself.
We are located in Farmingdale, NY

EnerTrac and EV propulsion are working on a electric differential version of the motor for small cars. We'll have something to show in a few weeks.

Anyway please don't bad mouth a product for a application its not intended for. When we come out with the car version it will be with a working car, then you can judge if the product meets your needs. We are also working on a controller to match to the motor for a greatly reduced cost compared with what is now available


Mark, this DIY forum's existence relied/relies on people being innovative using products made for different applications (forklift DC motors) in DIY EVs...No one is bad mouthing your product(s).

I look forward to your car hub motor or differential motor or whatever you guys come out with.
