Hi nred,

Took me about 17 seconds on google to find this.

Weight, 367 pounds

24.8 HP (72 Volts, 376 Amps)*

Because you mentioned it, I was kind of curious. And like we have seen on a number of occasions, published motor specs suck. The power, volts and amps indicate an efficiency of 68.2 %. And nothing there said this was a continuous rating. Offhand I'd say about 25 hp is what the continuous rating would be, except at a lower current and higher voltage.

Regards,

major

Ouch, that motor is inefficient! :O http://www.go-ev.com/images/003_21_WarP_13A_Ser_Graph.jpg

And it seems like you peak a bit over 40 HP.
Yeah, I know. Something just isn't right. With specs like that and a price of $4900, you wonder why they even bother :confused: And yes, you can run at higher voltage.

It goes back to my statement that there are not good data/spec sheets for these motors.

Why not go for Kostov 13?
From their site:

K13" 250V 3 800 USD


Meant for heavy vehicles, this motor offers 315A, 65kW and 140Nm (double the torque typical for an 11") as nominal. It achieves its torque with only 315A vs over 500A for our dual 11" motor which ensures long range for pickup trucks, buses and vans. Despite its size it can spin up to 4500-5000rpm so the vehicle can stay at 1st or 2nd gear most of the time. Forced air cooling is standard and included in the price tag. Note that this is not a motor intended for racing as its rpm when severely overloaded (4-5x) even at 250-300V can be significantly less than 3000. A race version is expected in the very begining of 2011.


Regards, Harri a happy owner of dual 11"
