    I apologize if the question has already been asked, but I couldn't find it.

    Does anyone know the weight of the electric motor in the Model S?

    Thank you, NIcolas

    The Roadster motor weighs 70 pounds, id guess its somewhere around there with the model s motor.

    The Model S motor is significantly more powerful (similar performance while moving much more mass) so I'd estimate about double the weight of a Roadster motor.
