    Wouldn't be interested in a Leaf but the motors are terrific, Heaps of people importing smashed Leafs into NZ for EV conversions. Not allowed to import cars into AU for parts apparently. You can import the Motor & battery packs, just not a whole car.

    You can reliably get 300Hp (220 Kw) out of a Leaf Motor , they are 320Nm standard . Terrific motor for EV conversions. Thinking of going that path in my Power Wagon, that'll give the Bar Treads hell.

    For comparison the HPEVS AC51 in my Landy puts out a mere 88kw / 150 Nm .

    He's putting the power of the two motors through a transfer box backwards to get a single input into the second transfer box which is working conventionally isn't he? Why are you scratching?

    I got the concept, I just though the execution was a bit odd to say the least - the angles on the driveshafts - and being so many, could well lead to issues. That short one looks very strange, and I think will wear the splines very quickly - thought he could have lined up the output of the first box to match the second one, but I haven't watched any more of the videos.

    Interesting article here,which is what many of us knew anyway,EV's do not suit many,in their current form.

    Hopefully hydrogen takes off.

    This is about to make some waves I think.

    Its showing a 150kw unit yet a large spec is mentioned by Yamaha and a lexus prototype is almost certainly using this and matches some published specs mentioned in the second video of 200kw about 268 hp per drive and show you can put them in a AWD set up for a mind numbing 4WD 300kw. Clearly the power is not a part of this. Battery, Hybrid or Hydrogen would all work.

    With 2021 or even late 2020 for these to roll out in Lexus and others it will be a interesting item to watch.

    Now for a LOT bigger than little electric motors

    GE for those few who do not know is the BIG boy in the room in power, Engines and a lot more. Oddly I was watching a very interesting ww2 clip on Battle ships, The Biggest Yamamoto and then Iowa a little smaller. Iowa engines were built by GE as was a a few engines on my own warships.
    Guess who also makes a lot of the equipment used in all our power generators 2 Bob you guessing were this is going Now back to Yamamoto and then Iowa. Who do you think will make the first BIG carbon free power generation plant? I am still hedging my bets on it.
