Let’s start off with something cool: if you put an in-wheel motor behind all four of your OEM 2005 Range Rover wheels, you’ll have more than 600 horsepower. They can gain their own energy while they brake, too. I told you it was cool.
One main question that people have is, “Is there enough torque for each application?” Since torque is pretty important… right?
The fact of the matter is that when a vehicle has these in-wheel motors, there is more than enough torque available. All the torque that is produced is transferred to the wheel; which means that very little is lost. Each wheel actually has some sort of sensor that determines how much torque the vehicle needs at specific points in time.
If anything, I think that these in-wheel motors for factory original rims may be smart & proficient enough to replace the engines that we have in our cars.
Don’t you agree?
