You do not want a compound machine that, like riding sweeper 7.5 HP motors you cannot physically reverse the field..

Any PM series DC machine above 5 HP is what you want.

How fast do you expect to go

What gearing are you using etc.

How much does it and you weigh

What is more important acceleration or top speed.

What voltage

As a ball park figure 500 watts will get you up to about 30 MPH (50 KPH) but not very quickly.

I have no idea what you mean about being a generator. More detail needed.

Look at what other people have done to asses the typical configuration.

You mean something when braking? Perpetuum mobile, or I (we) didn't understand the question...

Any you like.
As you don't provide any vital details I am just too lazy to guess around and ask endless questions to find out.
