Yes, 20KW , not 20KWH, there is a huge difference!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The battery pack can give a peak output of 20KW(26.8HP), but it can't hold that output for a full hour, which is the equivalent of 20KWH.

That's the equivalent of a man being able to lift a 200lb weight once, but not the same as that man being able to lift 200lbs for an hour.
