Hilarious.
The motor is "electro magnetic"
Well that describes every electric motor...

2MW peak power!
Sounds like the 80's speaker advertising.
Yes it does 1500W - for 1us.
Ah but in reality 2MW@700V is 2900A - a couple of medium sized IGBT's Image

It is only 2.9kWh per run + losses.
2kW panels ~4hours to recharge...

2900A/5Ah = 580C
Poor lipo's
Ultracaps should be in there somewhere.

So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.

So cynical... Image I reckon they could pull a megawatt easy. with a 30 Ah LiPo pack you could manage 100C and not be too overweight.

I seem to remember Semikron advertising a 2MW IGBT 3-phase bridge.
So the short answer is NO but the long answer is YES.
