Default Prius.

I happen to own a prius and have worked inside and out of the car. If anyone needs to know anything about the GenIII's let me know.

I was curious, do you know the horsepower/kW rating for the prius' DC motor?

Thanks

If you mean how much HP it gives per kW you give it?

I have no idea.. but I do know that @ 57kW it gives 76HP ~

However acording to Toyota it's between 750watts/HP to 950watts/HP

I guess what I was wondering is what the maximum/continuous rates for horsepower are for the motor.

Oh, that I have no idea. Given people have pushed these little DC's pretty far, and the fact they are PMag, I would say you have a pretty good chance of running at max for quite a while without serious burn up. Keep it around 5k rpms and you should be fine.

You might want to check out the PIP forums and see if they have an idea. (plug in prius)

The main motor can put out 67hp but the battery is limited to 27hp. I have seen a post from a EV only Prius that it got to 70mph

Default Re: Prius.

So, if you added a second battery pack and controller in parallel, it would produce nearer it's rated hp?
