I know that EVs give max torque from scratch but what am I missing that makes their claim that with 32hp and 70ftlbs it will outperform the standard 1600 crossflow credible??

here is another Morgan EV conversion - based on a 2018 model: Ebay Kleinanzeigen

From the looks I say it is a quite professional conversion. I assume they bolted the electric engine directly to the prop-shaft as the original gearbox is also on the picture with spare parts. You can also see that this allowed them to move the motor partly into the gearbox tunnel - which should be beneficial for weight distribution.

They write it has a range up to 200km - which is OK for a typical day trip on a weekend.
In my opinion, the charging times are an important aspect for longer trips. Those are often not documented or there isn't even an option for fast-charging.
