just wanted to throw 'measured numbers' out there for my MME, which is a Select AWD with metal roof, no comfort package, SR battery. actual curb weight is right around 4600#, measured at a non-certified scale at the local scrapyard last time I took some recycling in

peak output looks to be right at 190kW (at the battery) given HV battery voltage under load x max current under load as recorded by the ODB2 adaptor, displayed via Car Scanner app.

...only things I've removed so far to reduce weight are the under-hood 'pony' liner, and the back 'beauty cover' with combined weight of 10#, I've added 42# with a hitch receiver.

I just took 16 pounds out of mine, shooting for 50.

It was harder than yours though as it was taken off the drivers weight! 😂. How did I get so chunky!!!!

Very true. It's the area under the torque curve that matters. EVs deliver power differently and (with notable exceptions) don't lose torque to the ground by changing gears.

Not to mention knowing the splits between gears and yoour engine’s full torque curve to maximize the at tire torque being delivered upon shift. Each gear is going to have a differnt RPM at which to shift since the ratio splits are not constant netween each gear.

Yeah, I would love to get back to my college weight. That’s about 38 pounds ago. Not that i am counting.

true, the torque curve for eMotor is not 'perfectly linear', so the best we can do at this point is compare peak kW between various EVs..... Then, knowing weights, we can get a little closer to predicting actual acceleration at various speeds.
