In my mind, an electric motor and a small gearbox is a good idea. It gives you the torque and efficiency of the electric whilst retaining a decent top speed and range.

Not to mention that with a gearbox you can select the gear which keeps your motor happiest, at almost any speed.

Though, id have thought a 3 or 4 speed would be enough..

Are you having a clutch too, or direct to gearbox?
