The max power available from the battery is probably 20-30kw. I don't fully understand how the Tahoe's transmission/motors work, but if it's like the Prius, power is sometimes sent electrically from one motor to the other rather than through the transmission mechanically. That, and possibly being overbuilt for longevity, is why the motors are so powerful, not for EV mode.
