Most likely not. At a guess I would assume they are permanent magnet motors, and are probably not going to be able to produce enough torque, let alone deal with the internal stress that would be put on them in a hybrid situation. Now there are PM motors on the market that offer some potential for being intergrated in a hybrid like E-tec/Mars motors.

Whenever you are looking at an electric motor/drivetrain specs the general rule of them is;
Volts = RPMs
Amps = Torque

So when you see specs like what you presented they look like motors that can spin real fast, but not move much, which will be very necessary in a hybrid situation.
