These guys convert ICE classic cars to electric. The motor they use costs around £4,000. But an electric motor is the same if used in a car or a washing machine (why Dyson thought they could do it) so no special parts just engineered to cope with different tolerances.

No idea, no one mentions motor life ,the obsession seems to be batteries.

Electric motors are a well understood technology, they should last around 15/20 years before needing a major service.

The more I read, the more I like the sound of the MINI EV. Maybe in a few years when there’s some good 2nd-hand deals kicking around. :)
