New motor uses less power

Neat.  I calculated the power / mile, and got 290 Wh/mile.  That’s less than with the smaller motor (about 300Wh/mile).  Plus, there is no regen, so *IF* I can ever get that to work with this new motor, the power usage will be even better.

Lesson learned:  larger motors can be more efficient than smaller ones.

  1. I confirm your suspicion our 40kw nominal motor uses delivery 150~145 watts per mile at freeway speeds in our IMW sedan Seven
