The Varley evR450
The evR450 is believed to be running two Ultramotive CARBON motors, each with a peak power rating of 150kW ( and 522Nm of torque) and each offering continuous power of 58kW (122Nm)

To be built by a 125 year-old Australian company specializing in aerospace, defense and electric vehicles, the less-than-US$215,000 gull-winged Varley evR450 was on display at the Third Annual Australian Electric Vehicle Conference. Composites will enable the evR450 to be "featherweight" and development relationships with other EV specialists Tritium and Ultramotive have yielded an "ironless" AC motor with 300 kW of peak power and 1100 Nm of torque. The company is claiming a 0-100 km/h time of 3.8 seconds and an electronically-limited top speed of 200 km/h (125 mph). The evR450's range of 150 km (93.21 miles) can be doubled with an additional (but obviously heavier) lithium-ion battery pack and ...
