alright, still not quite what I'm asking for. if i were to look at an instantaneous reading, volts and amps, what sort of readings would a vehicle get. If I have 12 12v batteries, 144V available, not all will be across the motor, voltage and current would be limited by the controller.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around this watt/mile. 600W a mile for 60 miles (1hr@60mph) would that be 36000 watts? it cannot be 1000A at 36V, or 360A at 100v.
