Some motors can start under load, and some can’t. Where a motor is coupled to the load without an intervening clutch system on the load end, assume the motor cannot start under load unless you verify it can. And that generally means it needs to be a Design D motor, which has “extra high” starting torque.
How long do electric motors last?
These are just the key factors that affect the performance of an electric vehicle motor. However, in general, an electric car motor can last for more than 15 to 20 years, provided it performs within the limits of specified values and at normal operating conditions.
