Could a Leaf motor/transaxle move a 4900lb car to 75mph in a reasonable time?

If I wouldn't mind short range, like 45 miles, what is the smallest battery pack to drive a leaf motor?
Assume 3 miles per kw so 15kw
Tesla's are nominally 24v, no? What is the minimum voltage to run the leaf motor?

traveling short distances on the highway. Like 5-10 miles to local spots.
I was hoping to get to 60-70 in less than 10 seconds. so that getting on the highway wasn't a problem. But traffic around here even on the surface street moves 40-50mph.
