BYD E6 motor

1996 3
I want to convert my beetle kit car to electric - but it needs to be on a budget so the off the shelf kits aren't the answer.

There is a Chinese motor from a BYD E6 that seems to be too cheap has anyone had experience with them?

I think its more powerful than I need its listed as

TYPE: AC 3 phase EV motor with permanent magnets
power: 75-90KW
max 7500 RPM
max DC 312V
Can be used on 144-165V @3750 rpm thru gearbox to get better speed and performance
