|Vehicle||1989 Fiat 126 Bis |
Obtained vehicle specifically to be
converted to EV. The Bis was chosen
because of its small size and weight,
rear mounted engine rear wheel drive
(like the old VW Bug)
|Motor||LEMCO LMC 200 127 Permanent Magnet DC|
Lynch LEMCO LMC will be operated at
(controller programmed at 66% speed
pedal is fully pressed to test at
speed 48V). Currently planning DIY
motor in tandem.
|Drivetrain||Original 4 speed transmission, rear |
wheel drive. Retaining the clutch.
New Alltrax range looks good.

24x60Ah Sinopoly (only 34mm thick)to
start with. Intending to upgrade by
another 24x60Ah in parallel.
