I not sure how much off road driving Gromett has done but the question re a gearbox wasn’t particularly for max torque. In fact it was almost the opposite. We use low gears for control whilst descending hills. This isn’t available without a gearbox.Gromett, Torque is not proportional to how far the pedal is pushed down
I guess I was trying to explain EV's are really not that simplistic, most modern throttle peddles even on ICE cars are no longer connected directly but via a potentiometer that indicates to the engine management system that more power is desired, the management system decides whether you can have it or not as the case may be. Also consider on a old fashioned car where the throttle cable is directly connected with my foot flat on the floor at 2,000 rpm I will not be getting full power. So what I am saying an EV may have the potential to provide maximum power or torque however in many instances this will not be provided as optimal conditions will not have been met according to all sensors (one of which is the potentiometer), wet or icy roads etc or sensing wheel speed (Spin etc) .
Therefore the maximum Torque is not just proportional to how far the peddle is pushed down, but to a verity of conditions provided by the management system..
tonyidle was spot on in terms of an electric motor can provide max torque, but not when a vehicle management system is involved to manage the power delivery for safety and performance reasons.
Even my VW transporter will limit power to the driven wheels if I start to loose traction no matter if my foot is flat on the floor.
I really am not trying to be obtuse
It seems my posts are upsetting you and I do not wish to do this
