Default [Green.Autoblog]Evans Electric unveils monster in-wheel motor Down Under

"Evans Electric has chosen Meguiar's MotorEx – Australia's largest automotive enthusiast event – as the venue in which to lift the lid on what it's been up to all these years: a 75-kW (100 horsepower) axial flux 3-phase AC induction wheel motor boasting 625 Nm (460 pound-feet) of torque. And that's just the nominal output. They peak at double that rating.

If one were to stick a couple pair on, say, a Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution III as Evans has (pictured), then one could experience acceleration the likes of which would wreak havoc with one's physiology. That is to say, put your heart in your mouth, if not intimately acquaint your belly button with your back bone."

" Each Axial Flux 3 phase AC Induction wheel motor has a nominal output of 75 kw and 625 Nm of torque with a peak output of 150 kw and 1,250 Nm giving the vehicle a total peak output of 600 kw (800 hp) and 5,000 Nm.*"

If I'm doing my math right, each rear wheel is developing a max rating of 920lb-ft of torque from a stop for a total of 1840lb-ft of torque, before the turbo four under the hood is factored in. That's like 920lb-ft of continuously rated power from these massive motors.

Now that's a serious EV.
Simplify, then add lightness
