    Hi friends,
    I need go into details of induction motor applied in Tesla Roadster. Does somebody know someone who own such information? Maybe someone had dismantled this car and then took a photos of a parts?
    I need to know dimensions, rotor and stator design, windings type, number of turns, etc...
    I have to perform a computer simulation of Tesla's electric motor. I need it for my masters thesis. I'm looking forward for your reply. Thanks in advance!

    I'm guessing that information is a closely guarded secret.

    I agree but there is such information about Toyota Prius, Honda Accord for example and moreover - it is public!

    There are millions of Accords and Priuses on the road... and less than 1,000 Tesla Roadsters. So far, no one has been willing to dissect their new $100,000 car in the name of science.

    Additionally, since Tesla does all their own servicing of this component, there hasn't been a need to publish the details you're looking for.

    I think that information may come out some day, it's just not available now, as far as I know.

    Hi guys,

    I have the same problem, I'm doing a semesters thesis. I'm looking for motors with a very high power density to put them into aircrafts. Is there any information available yet? I'm searching for 2 days now and all I found was on Wikipedia. I just need to know the wheigt of the motor. At Wikipedia they say, it's 70 pounds (about 32kg). That's a power density of nearly 7kw/ kg! I think that figure means the power of the "short time overload-operation" (don't know the exact engl. word) electrical machines are capable of. Does anyone know the continous power the motor is able to provide?

    Greetings from Germany,

    Marcus
