Voltage and motors

What is the voltage of the motors ? 650 V ?
Does Tesla use permanently magnetized syncronous motors ?

Tesla uses AC induction (squirrel cage) motors that don't contain permanent magnets. I don't know the battery pack or motor voltage. Would be interested in knowing both, but not sure if this is public information...

Information elsewhere in the forums suggests something around 365V

I've got a friend in Germany who's company does "Live Work" training for electricians. They recently had a request to run a training course for technicians working electric vehicle battery packs. He said the course qualified the techs for working on live voltages up to 400 V DC.

Can't say where the battery packs were destined for, but I do also remember the EV in the electrical dept. at university having a 400 V battery pack (that was back in 2003).

So 365 V seems to be a possible figure by my limited experience.
