I am curious if anyone knows where the published power numbers are measured? Electric motor shaft or vehicle axles?

The stated power/tq numbers just seem low for an elect motor and it made me wonder if that was at the axles?

It would make sense to measure the power at the motor shaft since the reduction gear in the transmission is going to change the number at the vehicle axles. My understanding is that the Fiat 500e motor is not a model-specific built motor for the 500e, but rather an off-the-shelf Bosch SMG 180/120 motor and is also used to drive the front wheels of the Porsche 918.
