lipo batteries

I've been thinking about this as I build and fly Elec R/C airplaines. The advancements in the past few years have been amazing. Outrunner motors of 2 hp are not a lot bigger than a coffecup. Lipo batteries are now inexpensive. I think the application is for off road to overcome the lack of Ural low gearing. Intermitted use for the steepest, slowest grades that are impossible for a Ural. Adding 2 hp to the hack wheel with full torque available at zero rpm is the secret. With DIY fabrication of the metalwork the components battery, motor, ESC (electronic speed control) and batteries would be less than $500. BTW, the outrunner motors have the armature fixed while the field rotates, it is also 3 phase AC.

Won't be cheap...

I looked into just an electric motor that could handle highway speeds, controller, batteries, and charger a few years back. Added up to around $2000 just for parts, plus the machine shop work to hook the motor up to the wheel.

Not worth the bother...
