I don't think 1 or 2 KW would do it for a car on the open road.

If the car can do 40 or so around town, I would hope to push that up to highway speed with the extra juice and the extra push from the trailer.

Question is, would that large motor from the forklift put out enough juice to drive the two smaller motors at highway speed (>-55MPH) and charge the batteries at least a little when driven by the factory diesel ICE?
