Something seems off about the answer to the second question. Formal-E employs kg·m as a unit of torque when SI prefers N·m.

That bot is trolling.

Presumably “kilogram” in “kilogram-metres of clockwise torque” actually means “kilogram-force”, i.e. the weight of 1 kilogram at sea level on Earth, or approximately 9.8 newtons. That’s an odd unit of force for a robot to use, as it depends upon Earth in order to make sense, which seems a bit arbitrary.

The SI unit of torque is, as mentioned in earlier comments, the newton-metre.
