Motor Specs: The Elusive 100kw


Yeah, like I always think, oh, I’ll throw together a little comparison spreadsheet of whatever, how hard can that be?  About 2 hours later, here’s a comparison of motors and specs.

Everything I seem to love comes in at around 100kw, so that’s what I’m aiming for.  The general ratings for the systems are around 100V, give or take, except where noted.  The prices are kind of random – some with controller packages, some not, so don’t put too much stock in that.  The smaller motors like the EMS PMAC and the Zero 75-7 are shown doubled up to get them up to that magic 100kw point.

Yeah, and I don’t need to hear it, Brodsky.

  1. You have left the Evo AFM130 out. I’d say you could still actually buy one if you rocked up in the UK with a wad of Sterling, but it’s going to be in the $7,000 region. And that YASA price still looks too good to be true.

    • Yeah, no, I ignored it. 😮
      And yes, I really have no way of knowing the price on the YASA. I’ve been told they’re not in production yet, and if you want one it’s about $20,000, but will drop to $5000 when in production. Still unobtainium.

  2. A good row to add would be either aspect ratio or dimensions. AC35 Dual being the complete opposite as some of the others…
