Anybody have any idea what that actually means? Or why they couldn't just say torque at the wheels?

If I am understanding the math correctly each wheel in a 4 motor EV with 250KW motors that operate at about 500rpms will generate about 2500lb/ft. of torque at each wheel and X 4 wheels = approximately 10,000lb/ft total which is approximately 14,000nm of torque.( I assume grounded means if the wheels are not spinning and totally connected -rolling over- to the ground)
