Is it possible to use a small Elevator motor in an EV conversion? I live in a country where forklift motors, especially electric ones, are hard to come by, so I've recently been looking into alternatives. Price aside, are elevator motors usable for EV conversions?

I have a link to some datasheets for these motors, here: https://nagel.com.tr/wp-content/uploads/NAGEL-MAKINE-MOTOR-URUN-KATALOGU-TR-EN.pdf

But if it opens into a pdf, this link also works, the catalog is at the very bottom. HOME

Thank you so much!

Also, I have a list of datasheet for different DC motors, which Im trying to compare to the netgain Warp-9.

Unfortunately, While the Warp-9 datasheet lists varying (80+ amps) amperages at a fixed 72 volts, The motor I'm comparing only has High voltages with low amperages (9-10A) listed. Is there a way to compare these 2 datasheets to check for viability in an EV conversion?

Thanks!
