Tesla Crate Motor

Tesla Crate Motor Claims 550hp

The crate motor produces a claimed 450 kW, or 550 hp. On Revolt’s website, it notes the forthcoming Tesla drive kit includes “a highly modified 400-kW Tesla Model S motor producing approximately 533 hp with over 800 [lb-ft] of torque at the yolk.” So, either way, expect prodigious output from the motor.

A separate conversion kit offered by EV West includes what sounds like the same 400-kW Tesla Model S motor along with a different (more stock-appearing) gearing setup; it runs $11,900. The small-block-ready version has a custom gear setup (that longitudinal arrangement pictured here, which is distinct from the off-the-shelf transverse layout used by Tesla). In any event, consider this a cool addition to the crate-motor world—a plug-in Tesla powertrain that can fit virtually anywhere a small-block can. That leaves finding room for a battery as the main challenge for would-be EV crate motor converts.
