The motor i'm planning to use in my conversion of 1500 kg (including battery) is an 11 kw ac three phase 1470 rpm motor. I'm planning to retain the transmission. What could be the approximate max speed of the vehicle in the top (5th) gear. The vehicle is a sedan car.

it is front drive vehicle, the tyre size is 175 65 x 14, i am not sure about the final reduction ratio
karter and steven thanks for your kind reply. My doubt is, does a 11 kw but 1470 rpm motor can propel a 1500 kg vehicle beyond 60 70 kmph.
yes, it is 11 kw ac 3 phase 4 pole / 1470 rpm / 50 hz / s1 Duty / IP 55
voltage and amp rating is 400 / 690 and 22 / 12.7 @ delta / star identifation plate has been attached

hello Major, Shall we consider 50 kmph max as a safe speed. In the case if it is not which could be the safe limit
Hello Major, I understood. I will look for other options. Thank you.
