    Has anyone seen, read, heard, what the power output of the model 3 motor is? Watts, Amps, HP?

    Thanks

    That information hasn't been disclosed yet.

    The only performance numbers we've seen are 0-60 times (5.6 and 5.1) and top speeds (130 and 140).

    That seems low given the performance numbers and weight of the vehicle.

      So if my math is correct that would be 175,310 watts. Assuming a 230 volt motor would give us 762 Amps. EE was definitely not my forte.

      Everyone is going to start calculating if the Model 3 Dual Motor Performance Edition with Ludicrous will be competitive with Model S. Lighter car, not THAT much smaller a batter, a couple of shared-with-Semi motors, who knows?...
