Tesla motor as a generator

Question: would tesla motor can be use to produce electricity?
Or tesla motor is completely different then AC/DC brushes motors?
(I’m talking about motor only,disconnected from invertor,capacitors and CPU)

I have i wind turbine business in EU, and looking for most efficient generators.
Since tesla motor so advanced,I thought maybe it can be used as an generators.

Maybe manufacturers are years behind tesla motors.

Thank you for answer and suggestions.

Consider the duty cycle. No one runs an EV motor at 100% of maximum rated power continuously.
