The APD drives are neat, but they wouldn’t be the best choice for a ground vehicle like a EV
Their power ratings are with constant air flow (they’re designed for electric planes), and if you want the controller mounted on your roof or bumper, that may be ok.

They also can’t handle a significant amount of regen current, which would be a really big issue in a car EV.
