Peak Power 80 kW 107 hp
Nominal Power @ 950 rpm 18.5 kW 25 hp
Peak torque 670 Nm 494 lb ft
Nominal torque @ 950 rpm 180 Nm 133 lb ft

494 lb ft of tq!!!!! is that per wheel??!?!?!!

A company over in Great Britain did this a while ago on a Mini Coop S. Had like 80 whp and 150 wtq at each wheel.

Quite possibly. Big electric motors put out insane torque.

All that torque isn't worth shit without the HP. Take a look at the Prius. 260ft lb tq i think...0-60 in like 14 seconds.

Torque? HP? Hell, this electric's got it all...big time! One motor, not four. Is 0-60 in 3.5 sec enough for you?

The Pry-us doesn't accelerate on the electric though it uses a puny gas engine to accelerate and the electric to coast.
