Some real world experience.
1980 Vanagon with Chevy bolt drivetrain. I use a tiny radiator from a POLARIS SPORTSMAN 700.
To add, the radiator is not in the air flow when the car is moving since it is in rear of the van, but in front of the motor.
Despite that, no overheating problem during 30°C summer day.
The worst temperature see was 60°C after an hour of highway and it's why I plan to add a fan in front of the radiator.

By the way, in your setups do your motor and inverter share the same coolant system?
Yes. Motor, inverter, charger, DC/DC all same coolant loop.
Battery on another cooling loop.
