Electric Motors for Electric Cars

Hi all,

I was wondering if anyone knows of a good place to find NEW electric motors at low cost. I have been looking around, and have found a few good high power (200hp) motors, however they are prohibitively expensive! (>10k)

My company is designing a 150hp motor/controller all-in-one unit that we hope to sell for under $3000. I am trying to get an idea of if something like that is useful for the DIYers out there or not.

What do you guys think?
Thanks :)

This would definitely be interesting - Netgain's new Hyper 9 is a little over $4k for the motor, controller, and I believe it comes with some controls and a user interface. Do you have any specifics like voltage range and technology of the motor? Does it comes with controls? reverse? regen?
